Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling 2009

Just wanted to make quick post to let everyone know how I had a wine Sunday evening that we both loved.  It was the 2009 Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling from the Columbia Valley in Washington State.  I would call this wine off-dry as it had some sweet notes but definitely not too much.  It looked as pale as water in the glass but the explosion of fruit was awesome with tons of peaches and apricots.  The finish lingered on and on.  A delicious wine and a really great value.  I really enjoyed just sipping it on its own.  We scored it an 89-90.

They make a lot of this so you should be able to buy this almost everywhere for about $10.  Just make sure its the 2009.  Also don’t confuse it their other Reislings: Dry Riesling  and Harvest Select Riesling which I haven’t tasted.
