"Brought up all in stainless steel, the 2017 Riesling Poet's Leap is racy and exotic, with a rocking bouquet of green citrus, lime zest, and mint. Fresh, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and with a juicy, off dry style, it's terrific stuff that can be drunk today or cellared for a decade or more."~J.D.

"Pale, bright yellow. Intriguing aromas of Cranapple, lime, ginger and botanical herbs. Broad, spicy and energetic on the palate, showing a brisk touch of orange zest. The tactile, dusty back end displays sneaky rising length and subtle fruit-and-spice complexity. A very good vintage for this bottling. (12.5% alcohol).~S.T.

View all from Long Shadows
Long ShadowsFounded in 2003, Long Shadows is the brainchild of Washington wine luminary Allen Shoup. As President and CEO of Chateau Ste. Michelle and its affiliated wineries, Allen spent 20 years building the reputation of the growing region, in part by forging winemaking partnerships that brought Italy's Piero Antinori and Germany's Dr. Ernst Loosen to the Columbia Valley. During that time, he saw the region grow from 4,000 acres of unheralded vines to 30,000 acres of vineyards spread over nine different AVAs. At times, Allen's purchases accounted for up to 70% of all the fruit grown in the state. The beauty of this now is that Allen has long-standing relationships with many of the best growers in Washington State.

After leaving Ste. Michelle in 2000, Allen's commitment to advancing the Columbia Valley remained undaunted. He spent the next three years developing Long Shadows, a proposition that was as simple as it was complex: recruit a cadre of the finest winemakers in the world; give each vintner access to Washington State's best grapes; and outfit a winery to accommodate a diverse group of winemakers' exacting cellar specifications. With the vision in place, Allen began introducing a dream team of celebrated vintners to the vines and wines of the growing region. The idea quickly sold itself; and from the beginning, the wines have enjoyed critical acclaim that has continued to grow, vintage after vintage. In addition to the wines, Long Shadows collectively has won numerous awards, including recognition as Food & Wine magazine's "Winery of the Year."

"This is a dry Riesling so not typically sweet as a Riesling can be. Excellent with cheese, fish and poultry. Enjoy!"
