Postby TomHill » Mon Jul 15, 2013 3:41 pm

Tried this this weekend w/ Susan:
1. Sleight Of Hand Cllrs TheMagician EvergreenVnyd/ColumbiaVlly WW (100% Riesling; www.SofHCellars.com; 12.5%) TreyBusch/Mattawa/WashState 2012: Pale yellow near colorless; rather green apple/pineapple/floral/R/quince bit spicy light metallic/flinty/stony/lime juice attractive nose; very tart/crisp dry steely/flinty/metallic some green apple/quince/lemon/lime some floral/R flavor; med.long crisp/dry/tangy/lemon/lime green apple/quince tangy/grapefruity bit floral/R some metallic/flinty/steely/mineral finish; a clean/crisp/tangy laser-sharp rendition of R; very good drinking. $23.00 (vSC)
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. I often find some/many of the WashState Rieslings a bit too tutti-frutti, too often off-dry, and a bit boring. This one was not. Very nice Riesling varietal character w/ enough other stuff in it to make for a wonderful drinking white.

Sounds great. I have to admit that I hate punning winery names, and I actually didn't read this note purely for that reason! :lol:
