Jason Morin, a graduate of the Northwest Wine Academy, deserves applause for this work with Riesling from Underwood Mountain Vineyard, one of Washington’s coolest sites. Devotees can expect a theme of peach, melon, petrol and slate with a bit of sweet green pea emerging along the way. Two years ago, Ancestry’s 2017 Reminiscence went Double Platinum. Awards: Great Northwest Invitational (double gold), North Central Washington Wine Awards (double gold).
