2006 Late Harvest White Riesling

 

"Honeyed evidence of botrytis, with great acidity holding the sweet apricot and melon flavors in balance." --Sunset Magazine

"Superb. Intensely sweet, with honey and apricot flavors, a hint of tobacco and enough acidity to keep from being cloying." --San Jose Mercury News
