Madro├▒a Vineyards  Late Harvest  Riesling Mike Taylor Excellent  2003  $22.00
Dessert out of a wine bottle can be as good as any dessert you've ever had. A case in point is the 2003 Late Harvest Riesling from Madro˝a. This wine shows a lovely medium yellow gold color. On the nose, intense aromas of apricots, baked apples, honey and orange peel may make you salivate like Pavlov's dogs. The rich flavors follow the nose in a body that's thick and rich whilst showing an elegant structure. With unctuous sweetness and harmonious balance, the wine lounges around with pungent intensity and ethereal complexity. Overall, this is a richly delicious Late Harvest Riesling.
