washington-hills-late-harvest-riesling-pink-bottleBest Buy! Seattle-based Precept Wine shows its level of respect for this 25-year-old brands by putting it in the hands of Hal Landvoigt — the company’s director of winemaking. The orchard-fruit profile of this off-dry sipper makes it a tasty option to serve with a Thanksgiving Day spread featuring turkey. Aromas of baked apple, dusty lime and a pinch of sage transition to flavors of Golden Delicious apple and canned pear, which are met with an ample amount of late acidity to balance the 7% residual sugar. This wine also can be found in two other formats — one a striking blue bottle and another with a pink screwcap and pink ribbon in support of breast cancer research.
