bavarian-cellars-bite-me-peach-portYakima Valley winemaker David Padgett produces a variety of lip-smacking dessert wines under three different labels in Washington, including Bavarian Cellars, which has a history of operating a tasting room in the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth. Here’s a fruity fortified wine made with peach, a famed crop in the Wenatchee Valley, that offers aromas and flavors of nectarine, apricot and peach gelato. Ample sweetness (14% residual sugar) and heat of alcohol combine to make this a pleasant sipper.
