Sutter Home Riesling (white, sweet) 2009

Monday, September 12th, 2011

What a day!  It’s September, the warmest time in San Francisco.

It’s 4:00 o’clock and I’ve got to bring a wine on the ferry for our commute home.  Ive decided on a 2009 Sutter Home Riesling.  I’ve got to decide on the wine by 4:00 because I need to put it in an insulated envelope with some soft blue ice.  I get the envelopes from a shipping company . . . we’re used to seeing the logo when we have chilled white wine.

I bring out the wine.  There are a large number of summer tourists from somewhere in Northern Europe.   They’re all tall, very fit and very blonde.  My wife describes the hard bodied young ladies as “aggressively dressed”.  We decide the term fits.

Slightly Sweet,  with medium flavor (not soft).  Has slight sour aftertaste (finish) which can be nice on a hot day to kill your thirst.

Cheers.
