Winemaker Notes

We pick the Vin de Glacière Riesling grapes around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen. We press the grapes frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half the regular yield). The concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 16% Residual Sugar. The wine shows loads of pear, and some honey and horse radish. On the palate,... View More

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Dark and savory, this focused wine leads with amber scents of peach and caramel. It has the palate weight of honey, and rich, lasting flavors of apricot.

The 2007 Riesling Vin de Glaciere Wallula Vineyard (now known as The Benches) was made from frozen grapes until the wine achieved 16.1% residual sugar and finished at 8.9% alcohol. Nicely balanced by lively acidity, this intense, succulent, pleasure-bent offering is an awesome value in high-class booty-call wine.

Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
