This week I tried a 2010 Snoqualmie 'Naked' Riesling made around Paterson, WA, which is in the Columbia River valley in the middle of the state on the border with Oregon. It ran me under $10.
(The picture is blurry because it's naked.)
I guess this is an example of why I shouldn't buy inexpensive wine. I aerated it, but the first glass or two tasted a bit chemically, not a fully developed wine. Now, I will say that after a couple days in the fridge it was more drinkable, if not a great or even a good riesling. Maybe it just needed time to open up. The label description is generic: spice, pear, and apricot. That describes most middle of the dryness range rieslings.
I wouldn't buy it again, but if you something to take to a house warming or somewhere and see this, give it a try.
