Westport Winery Garden Resort NV Little Wild, Washington, $27

By on May 3, 2019

This destination winery on the Washington coast near Aberdeen continues to produce delectable wines, often by infusing them with fruit other than grapes. In this case, it is Riesling loaded with Marionberry, creating a dessert wine that is nicely sweet and loaded with flavors of dark blue fruit, including Marionberry syrup. With its 12% residual sugar, an ideal pairing would be with vanilla ice cream within view of the beach or the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake at the winery’s on-premise Sea Glass Grill. This licked the rest of the field to emerge as Best Nongrape Wine at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
