Best Buy! Founding winemaker David Minick and his family began planting wine grapes on their farm north of Prosser, Wash., in 1982. And this year, 2015, marks the 20th anniversary of their winery brand. A nose of light gooseberry, dried apricot and lemon zest also picks up sweet herbs, dandelion leaves and beeswax. The drink explodes with clean and tasty flavors of Granny Smith apple and lime as bright acidity balances the residual sugar of 0.7%.
