Chateau Ste. Michelle
Dry Riesling 10'

Naked Wine Review 81
Wine: Dry Riesling
Producer: Chateau Ste. Michelle
Vintage: 10'
Region: Washington>Columbia Valley
Price: 9.00 
Date tasted: 8/31/11
Place tasted: I was sitting heavy on a cloud; listening to the sweet moanings of Jolie Holland and becoming lighter by the moment. As the eyes of the sun slowly closed on the day, a gentle peace washed over my tired being....sip, sip, sip. 
Serve with: It would be delightful with all manner of Asian food. It's one of those rare wines that complements East Indian cousine beautifully as well.
I was lucky enough to run across a Thai Beef Curry Bento Box in my travels (actually I was tipped of to that). They were perfect together!
Appearance: is that of a Champagne diamond set in white gold with Peridot accents.
On the snoot: Soft pear with notes of gentle jasmine that ring high and true.
Taste: Delicate pear with a hint of something tropical combine with key lime to form a beautifully radiant disposition. Full with bright green fruit that is crisp and refreshing. Finish is soft and satisfying. 
Balance: Not a flaw on her naked body; just perfect. Bright without bite. Is she a ballroom dancer? figure skater? Maybe both.
Comments: This is a very happy wine. She will lift your spirits and cleanse your aura of all negativity. She is infused with all of the tolerance and gratitude necessary to get you through 'the ninety days of august'...smiling :)
Rating: 4 tipsys for sure
(of course, she graduated from Chateau Ste. Michelle's finishing school)
