Wine Review: This late harvest Riesling from Dr. Frank is Excellent! It is really deep yellow colored and opens with a very fragrant apricot and orange bouquet. On the palate, this wine Wowed me! It is full bodied, ultra smooth and very lush. The flavor profile is an absolutely delicious blend of pear, apple and apricot with a hint of mango. The finish is pleasantly sweet and lingers. I could not get enough of it. This is clearly one of the best dessert wines that I have covered in quite a while. Theresa called it awesome! If you love dessert wine you have to get a bottle or two. Cheers - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2008 Bunch Select Late Harvest Riesling presents a nose of dried apricot and caramel followed by wonderful tastes of honey and fruit common with the noble rot. This superb wine will age well and makes the perfect companion to bleu cheese, strawberries and cream or caramelized pears.
