Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling was my mom's favorite wine, and her birthday was the 27th, so every year I've made a point of finishing off a bottle on that day. Birthday was the 27th and she passed on the 29th, so it sorta kills both celebration/remembrance birds with one stone.
This is a 2008 vintage. Strong pear on the nose. Taste is also ripe pear, with some sweet citrus flavors. Has a bit of a dry and slow finish.
This is actually a fantastic wine, all sentimental attachments aside.
