2009 Covey Run Riesling

W0939-2Nothing boutique here. A giant winery owned by a giant wine conglomerate. Still, if you can find this for $5 a bottle, as I did recently, it represents off the charts QPR.

This tastes like very good cheap riesling. It’s off-dry with a bit of petrol and heavy on the lemon peel.

Nothing complex, but very easy, very enjoyable Washington State drinking. And, again, $5. Perfect spicy stir-fry wine. Perfect wedding party wine.

In a pinch, I’d pay the typical retail price of $9 or so and not regret it.

87 points.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
