2006 Riesling Estate:

“If you want to experience what the new generation of Northwest Riesling wines is all about, this is the wine to try. The nose of flinty minerals, dried straw, and unripe white fruits opens with warmth into wafts of sweet peach and rose petal. on the palate, vital and intertwined flavors of lime, lemon, white peach, and pear are compelling, with accents of mineral, dried flower petals, and tangerine peel showcased by clean acidity and great balance. This Riesling is all about depth, power, force, and flavor—the very definition of great Riesling.” – Cole Danehower (November 1, 2007)
