Coiled Wines 2016 Rizza Sparkling Wine, Snake River Valley, $28

By on November 28, 2017

One of the Pacific Northwest’s most fascinating expressions with Riesling, Idaho winemaker Leslie Preston presents this in a brut style. Last year, it was Skyline Vineyard near the Snake River that allowed her to present aromas of Key Lime pie, quince and gooseberry. Fine-grained mousse allows for refreshing flavors of Limeade and spearmint, and the residual sugar of 1% makes it quite a quaffer.
