Wine Spectator 90
"Sweet and silky, balanced with aggressive acidity. The poached pear, pineapple and spice flavors linger on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,400 cases made."–HS

Pacific Rim Winemakers is a Washington winery owned by Randall Grahm (also owner of Bonny Doon Vineyard in California). Pacific Rim's winery is located in West Richland (Tri Cities area in Eastern Washington) and specializes in Riesling. The wines have been produced since 1992 by Randall Grahm himself and more recently (since the 2006 vintage) by Nicolas Quillé. Pacific Rim produces principally Riesling from Dry to dessert style (seven Riesling in total including several single vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley) and also small amounts of Gewurztraminer and Chenin blanc. In 2011, Banfi Vintners bought the company for an undisclosed amount and is now run by long-time employee Nicolas Quillé as a general manager and head winemaker.
