Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling 2014

Willamette Valley Vineyards
Varietal: Riesling
Vintage: 2014
Country of Origin: Oregon
Appellation: Willamette Valley
Retail Price: $15

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

94
Alexana
Varietal: Riesling
Vintage: 2011
Country of Origin: Oregon
Appellation: Willamette Valley
Retail Price: $28.99

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.
