Entrust winemaker Victor Palencia with grapes from the Ancient Lakes and it seems certain to be a winner. Here, he wrings out aromatics that include perfumy grapefruit and guava, which then lead into flavors of live, guava and even a bit of papaya. All that fruit hangs on for a long finish of crisp acidity that calls for another sip. This wine earned a gold medal at both the 2018 Cascadia and the 2018 Washington State Wine Competition judgings.
