Rainstorm 2022 Rainstorm Pinot Gris

Aromas of lemon-scented candle wax and spicy gypsy peppers collide with the earthy aroma of petrichor after a good summer rainstorm. Talk about a Rainsong. Lemon zest and pine needle make up the lion's share of the flavors, with nice acidity backing them up.

Pacific Rim Classics 2022 Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling

This is indeed a sweet wine. The wine also has plenty of acidity, so it has that going for it. Aromas of lemon tarts and 7-Up are a canary in the residual sugar coal mine. Flavors like lemon drop hard candies and a peach margarita continue the theme. The wine is sweet without hitting cloying territory.

The wine's primary aroma of pineapples and wet rocks is joined by a trace of something smoky, like a roaring campfire at the beach. Peaches and lemon-lime soda pop flavors are tempered by a bit of orange zest. This off-dry Riesling is need of a bit more acidity.
