Another of the fine bottles I acquired at Costco. Very pale yellow in color and it has a sugary aroma, like honey and ripe fruit. The flavor is slightly sweet as it hits your tongue but then turns more dry as you swirl it in your mouth. I can’t place the flavor but it’s not like other examples of Riesling that I’ve had, and I’ve had a few. The flavor is somewhere between “fruity drink” and “cough syrup” in flavor but not consistency obviously. It doesn’t taste bad but the world is chock full of better Rieslings.
