Snoqualmie Riesling "Wine Maker's Select" 2007 wine review by (PB)

Straw hue with lovely bouquet of light lemon and pear with a mixed tropical fruit expression and then awesome sweet apple and creme brulee notes.

Palate--Big sweet fruit flavors of citrus, lime, minerals, stone and just more mixed fruit. If this had just a touch more acid I would do a cart wheel over it. But it is an excellent summer quaff so chill it down well and then enjoy it as it warms up.

At $7, this a wine you buy by the case for those nice afternoons in the sun. Pairs really well with a salty cheese like aged Gouda, as well as herbed goat cheese and sesame crackers. Raise a glass and shout "Yeah Washington State!"
