jones-of-washington-estate-riesling-bottleBest Buy! When you put grapes from one of the Pacific Northwest’s top growing regions for white wines in the hands of one of Washington state’s best winemakers, magic often follows. Victor Palencia reaches into the estate Two Gun Vineyard and produces a floral and tropical nose with notes of rosewater, apple, pear and Key lime. The drink is fruity, off-dry and luscious with ripe pear and Granny Smith apple on the entry. A squirt of lime balances the residual sugar (2.2%) with hints of mint and passion fruit in the finish.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 1,772 cases

Alcohol: 11.6%
