Cold Creek Vineyard has a long tradition of producing a rich,
soft tropical style of Riesling because of the area's warm temperatures.
This 2007 Cold Creek Riesling offers deep fruit-driven
aromas and flavors of ripe peach and pineapple, while maintaining
a refined elegance and a fresh, clean, refreshing finish. The
wine's concentration is attributed to the older vines that Cold
Creek is so well known for. My food choice with this wine is a
spicy Thai chicken salad.
"In 2010 the Cold Creek Riesling is actually a touch sweeter than Eroica, with unusually low alcohol as well. Compact and at the same time full-bodied, this mesh of primary citrus and stone fruits is marvelous, but clearly the best is yet to come. It will reward cellaring! Best Buy"
"Silky, with a light sweetness to the pear and apple flavors, hinting at talcum as the deft, tangy finish lingers. Drink now through 2016. 7,464 cases made."
"Scents of dried pineapple mingle with a green accent, like parsley, while the apple and pear flavors finish tangy and impressively bright. A lot of wine for the price."
