Pacific Rim Riesling - Solstice Vineyard 2012 Yakima Valley

Just under 10 g/l residual sugar, this Riesling, sourced from vines planted in 1972, opens with a juicy mix of grapefruit, orange and tangerine fruit. Textural and dense, it carries across and through the palate into a lingering, mineral-drenched finish. Superb already, it could be cellared through 2024 or longer. (7/1/14) Paul Gregutt

Pacific Rim Riesling - Solstice Vineyard 2012 Yakima Valley

April 2014 2012 Pacific Rim Riesling,Yakima Valley, Solstice ($20): A bit sweeter than the earlier Riesling, with 9 grams/liter r.s., it is still relatively dry. The aroma has slate, star anise, and a note of leafy depth.The finish is more white peach/pear. Not quite as interesting as the prior Riesling, but excellent value.

Pacific Rim Riesling - Solstice Vineyard 2012 Yakima Valley

Medium-weight and off-dry, this is silky in texture, offering effusive Golden Delicious apple, pear and floral flavors that linger effortlessly on the refined finish, with enticing structure and length. Drink now through 2019. – Harvey Steiman (12/15/2013)
