Paraiso Santa Lucia Highlands Monterey County 2008 Riesling, approximately $16.00, 87 points, is lemon/lime in color, and the aroma, though not offensive, was a bit like Vaseline and lemon.
This light bodied white wine is just off-dry and has good acidity, and with flavors of lychee, cantaloupe, and lemon, has some complexity.
The finish is fair with some ginger spice and a sour note.
