Though not as floral as Pacific Rim’s Gewürztraminer, this dry Riesling has an inviting component of citrus blossom, leading into flavors anchored in grapefruit and apple. It’s a wine with good presence and some power, leading into a strong, mineral finish. – September 2014

April 2014 EXCEPTIONAL 2013 Pacific Rim Riesling, Columbia Valley, Selenium Vineyard: ($14) The white peach and tropical fruit aromas are muted, and made more complex by juniper and a faint slate-y notes. The wine is startlingly succulent for so dry a wine, and it’s best with lighter foods.
