Taste profile from the winemaker: "A fruit salad of aroma’s, apricot, peach and pear give way to bright fruit flavors and crisp acidity with a hint of sweetness and a clean finish."
ABC Wines review: Aromas of guava nectar, pineapple, and even a little banana are exhibited by this wine. The palate is sweet but not overly so; it does lack sufficient acidity for balance. The finish brings out an unusual, slightly unpleasant flavor, almost a texture, that is completely at odds with the wine. Our Score: Better rieslings at lower prices are available from Idaho's neighbors to the west. Below Average.
