22. Chateau Ste. Michelle 2014 Dry Riesling, Columbia Valley, $9

chateau-ste-michelle-dry-rieslingWendy Stuckey and Bob Bertheau collaborated on a stunning dry Riesling last year using an array of more than 100 lots. Its lime and orange citrus aromas are mirrored in its flavors and carry into a long finish that displays sublime minerality. The result is a wine that’s perfect for sipping or pairing with Asian food. It’s easy to see why this is considered one of the greatest dry Rieslings in the world – and drives Europeans crazy because of its price.

Rating: Outstanding!
