Chateau Ste. Michelle, 2010 Riesling

Based on some online recommendations, this Columbia Valley Riesling I picked to accompany the veal saltimbocca, french fries, and broccoli raab that I had in celebration of our anniversary.  One glass carried me through a tasty garden salad; the second was paired with my entre.  In this respect it was more valuable, a light and sweetish Riesling that played off both the saltiness of the veal and the bitterness of the broccoli.

Great evening that far outshines this Washington white wine.  Much of it’s personal, so let me simply say the 2010 Chateau Ste. Michelle is probably better in a food pairing (some good ideas noted above) unless you enjoy its innate oaky sweetness.
