VML “Late, Late Harvest” Dessert Wine, 2011, Russian River Valley, California

16 Oct

107Damp conditions late, late in the growing season resulted in botrytized Chardonnay and Riesling, making for beautiful, richly textured dessert wine. Honeysuckle and orange blossom brighten the mead-like bouquet. Mango, tangerine and ripe melon burst across the palate. Surprisingly light and honeyed from start to finish. Sip it with a slice of almond tart. $22
