They pulled the clusters in from their vines overlooking the Snake River with the brix at 47%, and the resulting wine finished out at 28 percent residual sugar featuring aromas of honey, apricot, poached peach and white pepper. Its texture is extremely honeyed and lengthy with tasty apricot, pineapple and spices.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 76 cases
