    Winemaker's Notes:

    Because of the popularity and demand of our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, we thought it made perfect sense to craft a Riesling in a taste profile that was directly between our other popular Rieslings. Combine the facts that this slightly sweet flavor profile represents over one million cases sold in the market and that our new Riesling is line-priced with our Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, it's a homerun proposition.

    As wine lovers crave alternatives to heavy and oaky white wines, Riesling is experiencing a true revival (like a phoenix rising from the ashes—the inspiration for our label artwork). Portraying bright crispness, subtle sweetness and aromas of jasmine, pear and apple, the wine exemplifies the harmony of Riesling. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).

    Critical Acclaim:

    A classic Washington tasting-room Riesling--only better. Opulent and fruity, with apricots, star anise, mint, a very nice spicy streak that lifts it up, and adds a lot of complexity. Smooth and supple, it coats the palate, captures some floral highlights, even a bit of marshmallow.

    This wine was very lightly flavored with a slightly tangy aftertaste. I served it with paella and was hoping for more flavor and aroma than it could give me. I enjoyed it, but wouldn’t have given it the 92 rating that it received.-- Don’t think me too critical because you will love it if you like a lightly flavored drink. And I have certainly drunk far worse Rieslings in my life. So, three stars for the average taste plus one extra star for the excellent price.

    Fruity, sweet, crisp and refreshing. It's my new standby for Rieslings. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this choice if they like Rieslings.

    Meh...This wine was ok. Still had decent flavor, but not quite up to the bar set by the Eroica. For the money, not terrible.

    It's sweet and ... it's fruity and ... that's about it. A real light-weight Riesling you quickly forget with your last sip.
