Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Vineyard Riesling 2009
There's a nice bite to this wine's scents of lemon and green apple. The flavors are richer, the creamy middle giving way to a dry, talc-like acidity, with the persistence to pair with butternut squash risotto.
This succulent effort proves once again that a hot site can make excellent Riesling in Washington state. The Cold Creek signature minerality provides the base, and the fruit, vibrant and fresh, brings juicy acidity as well. The wine sails into a creamy finish that demands a glass refill.
