Picnic Wine – Stepping Stone 2010 Riesling, from Cornerstone Cellars, Napa Valley
HE says: I haven’t had too many California Rieslings in all my years of tasting. This Riesling comes from the Carneros region in the South of Napa, a long ways away from Germany or the Alsace region in France. True to form, the aromas are wonderfully flowery — very similar to the Rocks wine with notes of white peaches. The wine is very different in flavor tho. This Riesling is very dry and crisp, with a nice minerally finish. The acidity will make it great for all our spicy and tangy barbecue flavors. This Riesling is not sweet in any form. I rated it a very nice 14.
SHE says: You’re very serious for a white wine, must be the German genes.
