Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Riesling Columbia Valley Washington 2005

This Riesling from Washington's Columbia Valley exhibits floral aromas of honeysuckle with honey sweet flavors ripe with fruits of canteloupe and citrus rinds.

First paired with Camembert cheese, which did not work at all, and tended to contrast to the extreme, then switched to a Spanish Manchego which balanced well and took the sweetness of the Riesling down a notch.
