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:
