Pacific Rim Riesling 2007
It's not possible to order it direct since they are not permitted to ship to Ohio consumers. The state of Ohio has determined that they make too much wine too allow it to be shipped directly to an individual so one has to search and wait.
Sadly, the search and the anticipation was more fun than the wine itself. It seemed lacking in acid and tasted old, tired and flat. There was a small amount of Riesling flavor, but not much. Since this is a 2007 vintage wine I suspect this was a bad bottle. $9.
What I really want to try is some of higher end, single vineyard wines from this producer, but those apparently aren't available at all in Ohio, and since it's the same producer as this wine they can't even ship those higher end to the state.
I'll stick with the Barnard Griffin wine reviewed below for a dollar more.
