  • Charles Smith The Honourable Riesling

    … bumped into this wine of his, a deliciously focused and utterly drinkable Riesling.

    …. Syrah does really well in this type of region too, as does Tempranillo. I think we should see more Spanish varieties planted here. To what other region in the world would you compare the Snake River AVA? I’d say Ribera del Duero and Washington State.
