Firestone Santa Ynez Valley 2010 Riesling, $10.99-$12.99, 90 points, has a pretty light golden color, and the nose is an impressive array of mild aromas with melon, pear, and lychee nut leading the way.
The near-dry medium body has moderate acidity, a mild pithy flavor with melon and a hint of tangerine trailing into a soft ginger finish.
Just a short note on value: Western North America, from California to Washington, continues to impress with quality Rieslings, White Wines that taste great, paired well with almost anything (yesterday's Mac and Cheese), and cost few pesos. So far, I have not once been disappointed with North American Riesling.
