Mmm mmm! Either there are delicious fairies frolicing in my mouth, or I've had an extraordinarily long week. Either way, I give this wine a big thumbs-up. As a Reisling, it is definitely sweet, but not overpoweringly so. It has just enough spice hidden under the surface to balance the sweetness. It seems like there is a slight carbonation, which gives it a bit more of a 'wine cooler' feeling without the sugar coma. High on the fruity-floral scale, but I could see it appealing to a diverse group of wine-drinkers. My opinion is that this would be a good wine to serve to those dissidents who don't usually like wine.

I really liked this wine! Tastes well aged, kind of like oak. Very smooth aftertaste. I would most definitely drink this one again. This wine was the winner of the wine tasting. A whole-hearted 5
Smells bold and kinda acidic. Tastes full-bodied and not acidic. 5
This is the wine Brian brought back for me from his trip to Boise. Smells highly acidic, but fortunately it tastes much better than it smells. Good aftertaste, though more acidic than I prefer. Tastes a bit like cherry. 4
Smells acidic. Tastes acidic. Probably will get a bad hangover. 2
Tried this at a wine tasting awhile back, and I'm finally getting around to putting it on the blog. I thought it was rather fruity, tasting cherry and plum. Also had quite a bit of spice to it. Dry, but full bodied. Seemed like there was almost too much going on. 3 out of 5.
Smells kinda dry. Tastes mellow and foofooey. 3
