2013 Grgich Hills Estate Violetta Late Harvest, Napa Valley, USA (375 mL) HALF BOTTLE
"Our classically-produced late harvest wine is the result of Botrytis cinerea, a beneficial mold that evaporates moisture while concentrating the flavor in the berry but yielding very little juice when we press the grapes. We fermented the thick, rich juice and then aged the wine in French oak to develop its subtle flavors and textures. Rich aromas of ripe pear, Mandarin orange and honeysuckle lead to a lingering, harmonious finish. Violetta is spectacular when paired with desserts that echo these flavors, such as fruit tarts, crème brûlée and rich cheeses, or serve it all by itself to end a special meal."
