Covey Run Dry Riesling 2003 (PB)

From Washington State, this is a brilliant, lively white with a unique bouquet of Guava(?) pears and peaches delicately balanced with a candied nose of something elusive and exciting.

This wine seems a bit sweet in the mouth yet its acidity balances it out to seeming a little dusty. It turns buttery, and fruity with dancing eensy bubbles on your tongue. It is wonderful with food or by itself.

At $8, this is a winner and another recommended wine to seek after. I just returned from the place where I bought it and of course they have been replaced by the 2004’s. I picked up one bottle to see if it is anything like it’s older brother. If it is, I’ll be buying more. Now raise a glass!
