Sawtooth Estate Winery 2010 Late Harvest Riesling, Snake River Valley, $12

By on April 4, 2013

Idaho wineBest Buy! Sawtooth Winery was known as Pintler Cellars when it launched in 1987. It is now one of Idaho’s oldest and largest producers. Precept in Seattle has owned Sawtooth since the company began in 2003 (and actually well before that). This delicious and affordable dessert wine opens with aromas of honey, lavender and yellow grapefruit, followed by flavors of fruit cocktail and poached pear, all backed with 6% residual sugar and a nice balance of acidity. It’s a delicious sipper on a summer afternoon.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 1,600 cases

Alcohol: 10.07%

      Greetings, Nichole.
      We published our review of the 2010 vintage in 2013, but your first option should be the Sawtooth tasting room. Here is the link to their contact page.
      I hope you can track down a bottle or two.
