Wine Review: This light yellow colored Riesling from Navarro is for fans of sweet wines. It opens with a mild apricot, honey and golden raisin bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and syrupy. The flavor profile is led by a honey and apricot blend with hints of black iced tea and a touch of peach. This wine is a bit over the top in terms of sweetness. But the Tasting Panel enjoyed that about it. They suggested serving this with vanilla ice cream with peach compote or cheesecake with a red raspberry drizzle. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The oldest Navarro Cluster Select Riesling has only 33 years under its belt, but it continues to impress us with its longevity as grape sugars and high acidity are natural preservatives. This wine is lovely with pumpkin or huckleberry pie but please experiment; try it with a ham and leek quiche or with crispy fried chicken wings while watching a big game
