Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling 2014 ($8) is one of the real values for this Holiday Season. Its a great all around wine to be enjoyed now right through the Christmas And New Year's celebrations. Besides the terrific price, the flavor is fantastic. The wine goes with just about anything you would serve to your guests and it has an appealing flavor of seasonal apples, pears, candied citrus and a really nice, lean minerality that gets your taste buds flowing for a really good meal of roast duck, turkey, even a succulent leg of lamb roasted with garlic and rosemary. It has just enough residual sweetness that it can also carry over to the pumpkin pie, red velvet cake for cream cheese cake that inevitably dominates the dessert table. Happy Holidays!
