Washington wineBest Buy! Launched by Washington wine entrepreneur Harry Alhadeff in the 1980s in the Yakima Valley, Apex Cellars is now part of Precept Wines in Seattle. The winery remains in the Yakima Valley, residing in the Vintners Village in Prosser. This Sauvignon Blanc is a frisky wine with aromas of sweet herbs, freshly mown grass and honeycomb. The palate is highlighted by bright acidity and an immediate hit of lime juice, along with flavors of apple and minerality. It’s a yummy wine to pair with scallops, halibut or baked chicken.
