Hogue Riesling 2010 wine review by (PB)
Light gold with peach, sharp apple, tropical fruit and an awkward, oily petrolium kind of aroma.
Palate--lovely acidic foundation with sharp, puckery, green apple flavors. Short lived but fairly refreshing.
This is a Columbia Valley wine which would be pleasant anf fresh chilled if it wasn't for the nasty, petrolium odor. I've experienced this before in Reislings in varying degrees and it may dissipate wth air. If it does, this is a nice summer wine and will pair well with many things including more difficult foods to pair with like Asian or lighter Mexican fare. We will have it with fish tacos.
At $8 at Trader Joes in Pasadena, raise a glass (if the oily smell goes bye bye.
