Snoqualmie 2012 Riesling “Winemaker’s Select”

Columbia Valley, WA; 10.5% ABV
$4 at the Richmond, CA, on 17 Dec

IMG_1375I’ve had this bottle for a while, and the wine may be gone from stores by now.  It just never seemed to be the most interesting choice.  If anyone missed it, I don’t think you missed all that much.

The off-dry wine has rich flavors of yellow apple with some lemon / yellow grapefruit and a trace of green apple.  To my taste, it’s somewhere between grape juice and what I think of as a “real wine”, and I would prefer it to have more acid, but it’s easily quaff-able, especially for the price.
