Wagner Vineyards Riesling Ice WIne...Wow!

This evening we had some friends over to start making some dates for April and May. Alas, spring is almost here despite winter's icy blasts reminding us that his hoary breath is still with us.

To help make the conversation go down better we had a fruit tart with creme filling...and with it we had Wagner Vineyards 2000 Riesling Ice Wine. It had scents of apricot and apple, and it tasted like a mixture of apples, raisins, apricots and honey. It was nicely balanced and tart. I loved it. It tasted great, and I got lots of compliments on, which also made me feel good. It was awesome.

The wine has won the following gold medals:

2004 Great Lakes Wine Competiton

2005 Tasters Guild International

2004 Tasters Guild International

2003 Tasters Guild International

2002 International Eastern Wine Competition

2002 Amenti Del Vino

2002 Atlanta International Wine Summit

2002 New York Food and Wine Summit

However, there were two things I didn't like about it...it went down too easily and I didn't have another bottle.

Have fun!
