This was one of the first wines I tasted with my girlfriend on our CA trip in 2008. We got a personal winery tour and talked to the winemaker. Firestone is for sure one of the larger wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley with an state of the art production. We tasted different bottle of Firestone but somehow fell in love with this particular one. It is sweet but not too sweet, with some honey and beautiful to drink.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Only extraordinary vintages bless us with enough botrytis to make this Late Harvest Riesling at our estate in the Santa Ynez Valley. This famed "noble rot" emerges late in the harvest season, intensifying fruit flavor and sugar for the crafting of a luscious, nectar-like wine. The vintage begins with enchanting aromas of honey, orange blossom and dried apricot. A rich, luxurious texture unfolds with flavors of peach, apricot, mango and citrus. A warm sweetness is balanced by firm acidity for a long, clean finish. Enjoy this wine with light desserts, fresh fruit or as a dessert unto itself.
