Precept Wine executive David Minick and his farming family began planting wine grapes in 1982 north of Prosser, Wash., and the site in the Roza Hills continues to produce showy white wines. Aromas of facial powder, rosewater and orange oil come with freshly peeled lychee, jasmine and pineapple Life Savers. Its huge tropical flavors are delicious, and the citrusy acidity is just enough to balance the 6% residual sugar. Enjoy with a steaming bowl of Vietnamese pho.

Rating: Outstanding!
