J.Lohr Monterey County 2010 Riesling


J.Lohr Monterey County 2010 Riesling, $9.99-$11.99, 90 points, is a watery color gray with copper tints.
The aroma is a light minty citrus and a hint of honey.
The near medium body carries good acidity with a bit of lemon, tangerine, and a hint of pine needles. Check out: pine needle tea? Could save your life if you ever get lost in the forest!
This is not a bone-dry wine, but won't satisfy a sweet tooth either.
Finishes refreshingly with juicy white grape.

J.Lohr Monterey County 2010 Riesling  enhances Asian cuisine and the cuisine enhances the wine; makes a perfect partnership!

  1. Hi Dennis,
    I am looking forward to trying some of your Riesling suggestions!
    I have to ask, have you tried the pine needle tea yourself?

    1. No! Haven't tried the pine needle tea, but I've got the survival books to tell me how; I use to hike five days a week, especially in the White mountains, and one always needs to be prepared.
