sawtooth-estate-riesling-nv-bottleBest Buy! Boise native Meredith Smith produced two gold medals with Riesling at last fall’s Idaho Wine Competition, including this one. It offers aromas of lemon zest, mango and pineapple followed by flavors of juicy papaya, marmalade and a hint of lychee – a sign of the Muscat Blanc (2%). It’s a delicious off-dry wine with 1.5% residual sugar.

Rating: Outstanding!
