Coyote Canyon Winery 2014 Sweet Louise Late Harvest Viognier Riesling, Horse Heaven Hills, $22

By on December 31, 2016

Justin Michaud’s second vintage for Horse Heaven Hills grower Mike Andrews included this tasty desert wine that’s a Coyote Canyon traditional blend of Viognier (62%) and Riesling.  It finished out at 21% residual sugar with a classic ice wine nose of apricot glacéed, fig, poached pear with cinnamon and honey. Those notes come through as flavors, too, wrapped in a texture of maple syrup and capped with a nuttiness that includes a squirt of grapefruit.
