Dr. Loosen 2010 Riesling Kabinett Mosel Blue Slate

comment

I suggest finding this delightful, value-priced white wine while you still can: It earned 90 points and the rating of “smart buy” from Wine Spectator’s critics. I enjoy Dr. Loosen’s lowest-priced Riesling, “Dr. L,” at $10.99 at Trader Joe’s, but this one is several steps up in quality. I loved its luscious, tangy green apple and citrus notes that are so beautifully balanced with notes of minerals. Quite drinkable on its own, it’s the perfect foil for an array of foods. You’ll find it versatile with blue cheese, gruyere, or fontina, roasted poultry, seafood salads, or fall fruit with blue cheese, nuts, and dried cranberries. It’s excellent with spicy Asian or Thai dishes. You’ll find it bargain priced at Costco in SLO for $14.99 (regularly $22 retail).
