A pale, flax-colored Riesling, with scents of citrus and stone fruits. I generally find Washington Rieslings to be more delicate than their German counterparts, and I was not surprised with the Chateau Ste Michelle. The fruit was light and delicate, with a slight acidity which balanced a mild sweetness. It had a quick and gentle finish, cleansing the palate on the way out.
An enjoyable Riesling, and very budget-friendly at around $9 a bottle, available at most grocery stores. It did not express any real complexity or terrior, but it as eminently drinkable.
