Airfield Estates in Prosser, Wash., already made some of the best value wines in the Northwest, and then the Miller clan created its second lower-priced label. The Millers cropped their Black Rock Creek vineyard to 5 tons per acre for a wine that opens with a nose of lemon zest, Asian pear, starfruit, white pepper and river rock. The approach to the palate is dry (0.6% residual sugar) yet fruitful with pears, Honeycrisp apple and more starfruit. The pleasing finish of citrus pith and tutti frutti will pair deliciously with a Waldorf salad.
