Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling from Kendall Jackson is a good value. It opens with a fragrant bee's wax and quince bouquet with hints of lime. On the palate, this wine is semi-sweet, nicely balanced and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty white peach and quince blend with notes of pineapple. I also picked up hints honey, Key lime and almond. The finish remains semi-dry and it flavors fade away nicely. This Riesling is very food friendly and would pair nicely with Thai rolls with a sweet sauce. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Deliciously crisp with vibrant fruit aromas and subtle spice notes. Layers of apricot, peach and Anjou pear intermingle with bursts of aromatic jasmine delivering a delightful finish.
