2005 Snoqualmie Winemaker's Select Riesling, Columbia Valley ($7)

WINE FIND

June 28, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

If you're very sophisticated and demand only complex, dry wines, see you next week. This white wine is definitely on the sweet side, and you don't need a cryptologist to decode the message that this wine is all about the fruit (and a great price). It's pure riesling - with loads of citrus, peach, melon, tropical fruit, honey and all those decadent flavors. It's not so sweet it can't be served with the right foods, but it has enough residual sugar that it might appeal to some young people making the transition from shooters and soda pop. Serve with Thai green papaya salad, satay or roast turkey.
