Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Washington Riesling is a terrific value. For $14 it is a lot of Riesling for the money. It opens with an apple like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, off-dry, and has nice balance between its sweetness and acidity. Its flavor profile is a blend of apricot and peach flavors. The finish is nicely refreshing. We felt this wine would be a perfect complement for a baked ham with a brown sugar mustard sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2006 Traditions Riesling is a great example of terroir and variety. The textbook floral aromas of orange blossom, apricot and white peaches are well supported by the firm acids and hallmark “Evergreen minerality.” The palate is lush, but lively; the finish is long and silky.
