Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from Washington State was well received by the panel. It opens with a faint red delicious apple bouquet with hints of flower blossoms. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, elegant, and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild tart green apple with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of Bosc pear, lemon, and white pepper. The finish is semi-dry and fades away nicely. This Riesling is food friendly and the panel suggested that it would pair well with lobster or orange chicken. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With wonderful brightness and purity of flavor, the 2012 Poet's Leap is a vibrant, refined wine showing impeccable balance. Layers of minerality, white flowers, dried apricots, refreshing citrus and a hint of honey provide complexity that lingers across the wine's clean finish.
