2013 Late Harvest Riesling
Our Late Harvest Riesling is left on the vine to develop botrytis cinerea, the “noble rot,” and then is harvested a full two months after our Dry Riesling. The juice inside each grape is reduced to a precious golden syrup.

The spring was warm and dry, getting the vines off to an early start. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. September brought a classic Napa Valley autumn with warm days and very cool nights. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines—full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity from the cool nights.The Wine
A stunning nose of ripe apricots, roses, orange blossom, tangerine and crème brulée leads to voluptuously sweet, yet fresh and lively peach, apricot and pineapple flavors.Food Affinities
Shines with desserts featuring apples, pears, peaches or apricots.
