Wine from my collection: Canoe Ridge Riesling 2008

It's almost that not-white-wine-drinking time of year; the time of year when I'll switch to reds almost exclusively. Which is not to say that a nice white isn't enjoyable in winter--but not when it's overly chilled, as most of them are.

Anyway, the point is, I'm running through my white wine supply and not replenishing it.

Canoe Ridge Riesling is a lovely dry, acidic riesling from Washington, a great under-$20 bottle and a great food wine. I'm leery of rieslings, because most tend to be too sweet for my tastes, but this one is just right. Well-balanced, fruity, just a hint of sea spray.
