Best Buy! This brand, which Precept rescued several years ago, celebrated its 30th anniversary with this vintage. A trio of Yakima Valley sites near Prosser – Canyon Vineyard Ranch, Willard and Willow Crest – traditionally come together for this expressive, off-dry and affordable Riesling that gets a boost from Gewürztraminer (15%) and Chenin Blanc (7%). Orange blossom, pink grapefruit, peach and vanilla taffy aromas transition to a delicious combination of white peach, honeydew melon and spearmint flavors. A penetrating injection of Meyer lemon and Key lime juice tightens up the listed residual sugar of 2%. It’s yet another example that Washington rocks Riesling.
Production: 504 cases
