Clear, pale silver-straw appearance. Medium intensity nose of citrus, green apple, and a hint of sweetness. Off-dry, high acidity with a medium body. The sweetness takes over in the mouth: honey and apricot, with a nicely balanced background bite of mineral acidity. Medium length finish of evolving lemon and agave nectar. Overall good; another recommended Washington State Riesling. (See also my notes on the 2008.) 11% alcohol. Good value: $20 at Crosstown. See Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery (warning: Flash site).
