Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Riesling 2015
Washington

Tasting Notes: An outstanding example of riesling, from Columbia Valley in Washington State. In cooperation with one of Germany's top riesling producers, the Eroica sets the bar extremely high for other producers in the U.S. and across the globe. Great tropical fruit, with a very long and balanced finish.

Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling 2014
Oregon

Tasting Notes: Oregon is not where you would typically expect to find Riesling of this outstanding quality. The aromas of sweet, ripe nectarine, Anjou pears, wild flowers and honeysuckle lead you to believe this will be a sweet wine. But as the wine dances across the palate, the complex flavors and the focused acidity takes over. Completing the experience is the long, lingering finish.

Alexana Riesling 2011
Oregon

Tasting Notes: Riesling is becoming more and more of a hot-button grape in the state of Oregon. Alexana is producing the style that has people talking. Made in an Alsatian style, and closer to dry than off-dry, this Riesling can convert any white wine fan to a Riesling fan. Heck, any wine drinker in general. You won’t find a richer, more expansive palate on a Riesling from this area of the country. Team it with your next Thai dish or a hot summer day.
