Washington's Klipsun Vineyard is the source for this Sauternes-style dessert wine. Harvested in late November at 38.5 brix, then aged for 18 months in a mix of new and second year barrels, it is a thoroughly delicious and decadent dessert wine. Lush and thick without being fat or tiring, it's bursting with butterscotch and candied tropical fruits.
