The George, Wash., vineyard allowed for aromas of petrol, pineapple, apple and lemon curd, followed by flavors along the lines of juicy Bartlett pear, peach pie filling and pineapple. Its late-harvest approach with 7% residual sugar should make it an easy pairing with Ellena Conway’s Sweet Riesling-Soaked Grape Cake.
