The 2006 vintage was yet another year of perfect grape growing weather in Washington State. After a wetter than normal spring, a long, hot summer blossomed, decreasing the quantity harvested, but increasing the quality. Autumn was ideal with dry and warm conditions. This was followed by an exceptionally cold morning (12 degrees Fahrenheit) on November the 1st creating perfect conditions for making ice wine.
Rich fragrances of spice, baked apples and lemon rind carry though the palate and are counter-balanced with a lingering scent of tropical flowers and exotic destinations. This wine is equally enjoyed as an aperitif or a dessert wine. For a decadent treat try making Gordon Brothers Ice Wine milkshakes or blend with ice as a daiquiri.
