Poet’s Leap Columbia Valley Riesling 2010

Clear, light gold in the glass. Medium intensity apricot, apple-pear, and citrus nose. Just off-dry, strong acidity, and light-plus body. Citrus—particularly lemon—and mineral dominate the palate; evolving and nicely balanced green fruit flavours work towards a lingering finish of crisp green apple. 12.9% alcohol. Overall very good, one of the best west coast Rieslings I’ve ever tasted; I’ll be picking up a couple more bottles of this. See Long Shadows Wineries.

This was a birthday gift from my wonderful interaction design team at Vision Critical. Drinking with Tempeh “Steaks” with Mushroom-White Wine Sauce (no, I’m not using the Poet’s Leap in the recipe!) from Big Vegan.

  1. Popped an ’08 of the Poet’s Leap Riesling from Long Shadows earlier this Summer – fantastic stuff indeed! I too will need to look for more!
