Shows tropical botrytis character of candied apricot, peach, and pineapple. The palate is lusciously sweet with a balanced acidity and wonderful length of flavor.

Winner of the 2003 Taster's Guild International Double Gold Medal, this wine exhibits light, refreshing aromas as it's poured into your glass. While swirling it, you'll notice its pale straw color in the light and its weight as its "legs" slide slowly down the sides of your glass. As you taste this wine, its sweet-tart flavor explodes in your mouth like biting into a crisp green apple and it finishes with a nice streak of acidity that hangs with you for several moments after you swallow. Everything you've just experienced is a reflection of the high quality Riesling grapes used in the creation of this wine and the care and attention given to its production by winemaker Tim Miller and owner Dick Reno.

A plump, friendly, off-dry style, with tasty apple, fig, almond, and spice notes that linger on the lithe finish. Drink now.

Surprisingly lean and light bodied, this doesn't show typical characteristics of a late harvest wine, but its a clean, refreshing dessert wine evocative of dewy, fresh wildflowers, melon and lemons with just a hint of petrol. Bitter lime pith and pleasant notes of slate and stone add some complexity as well.

An extremely smooth blend of vinifera and French-American hybrid grapes produces this bright, lively, bold red with a velvety texture that will complement any food pairing. Delightful on its own.
