Chateau Ste. Michelle "Indian Wells" Riesling 2007 wine review by (PB)

Straw hue with big tropical fruit compote aromas with pineapple life savers which gives way a day later to Granny Smith apples and peaches.

Palate--Ultra fruity and a touch sweet with an off dry presence and acid foundation that could use a bit more oomph. Finishes with fruit galore and lingers.

This is an $11 wine value and the Rieslings are really showing ridiculously well from the west coast and Pacific Northwest. So chill it down, raise a glass and just say, "Ahhhhhhh!" and who knows? Summer may yet show up in New England...
