O.K. I had tried both of these Rieslings before and really wanted to know which one I liked best. Not so easy to remember unless you do a taste test. Well here you go!!!
The winner is, in my opinion, the Washington State Riesling "Chateau Ste. Michelle".
I found, in comparison, the California Riesling was a bit watered down. Still a very good wine, but if I were to buy 1 bottle, I would choose the Washington State wine...
The Fetzer Wine is described as a medium-sweet, rich and floral, pale yellow with aromas of pear and apricot.
The Chateau Ste Michelle-Harvest Select Riesling (Colombia Valley 2009) wine was purchased at the fancy "Walmart" grocery store for only $13.97. Desribed as a rich, sweeter style with juicy "dribble down your chin" flavors of peach and apricot!
I must really like pear and apricot....
Be sure to enjoy!!!
