2007 2007 Poet's Leap
- Winemaker Gilles Nicault
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Riesling
Loaded with honeysuckle, melon, pear, peach and hints of sweet grapefruit, this juicy wine perfectly captures the intensity of Washington Rieslings and the complexity of German wines.
The 2007, with estimable vineyard sources that include Wallula, Weinbau and Dionysus, is ripe and tropical, leading with peach accents and a wheaty scent of lees. The flavors are exuberant and fresh, the textures voluptuous, held to a lean contour by a firm, talc-like minerality that calls to mind Diel's home turf.
