6. Mt. Hood Winery 2014 Dry Riesling, Columbia Gorge, $20

2013 Day in the LifeThe Columbia Gorge AVA is proving to be one of the most fascinating emerging regions in the Northwest, and this stunning Riesling is an example of the potential this area holds. Aromas of passionfruit, pear, lemon and gardenia lead to flavors of Granny Smith apple and Graham cracker pie crust. It’s all backed with stunning acidity that gives way to a length and viscosity not normally found in Northwest Rieslings.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 143 cases

Alcohol: 12.2%
