"From the Long Shadows wine portfolio, the Poet's Leap is a consistent contender for best U.S. Riesling. It certainly proves year after year what the Columbia Valley can do with this grape. The 2013, which is just reaching the market, is effusively fresh and zesty, almost jubilantly fruity. After an hour or so, it calms down and displays classic Riesling character of apricot and peach with a mineral core. Many stores may still have the 2012, which is also top-notch and might not need that hour to calm down. Alcohol by volume: 12.9 percent."
