Covey Run Riesling 2004 (PB)

This Washington State white wine is a very pretty pale golden on the pour with a solid nose of grapefruit and fleeting peach overtones. On the palate, the first blast is sweetness but then suddenly veers off to a nicely acidic offering that is somehow both mildly sweet yet dry at the same time.

It has a mildly buttery texture mid-palate and a pleasant finish of citrus. This wine was given an 87 rating the Wine Spectator and I heartily concur. Now sit down–this wine is $7.50! That makes this a great value and it is in good supply so finding it should not be a problem. Don’t pass up this opportunity. Raise a glass or two!!!
