We pick these Red Mountain Chenin Blanc grapes during a deep freeze in order to coax the concentrated juice needed for a dessert wine of this caliber. This involves monitoring vineyard temperatures deep into the night and picking at the right time to ensure optimal flavor and sugar extraction. Kiona is an Indian word that means brown hills. The family owned winery helped pioneer the Washington wine industry when it planted some of the area's first vines in 1975. Two proud generations of winemaking and viticultural excellence are captured in this outstanding wine.
Bright yellow. Aromas of apricot nectar, honey and marzipan, lifted by a spicy candied ginger nuance. Lush, round and very sweet, offering palate-coating pit fruits and honey flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. In a decidedly rich, decadent style, leading to a sweet, spice-tinged finish that lingers impressively. - Vinous Media

2014 Robert Mondavi Winery Moscato d'Oro Napa Valley 375ml
Manufacturer: Robert Mondavi Winery
Brand: ROBERT MONDAVI WINERY
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th Napa earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit.
Each harvest Head Winemaker Bob Swain looks for a small number of lots that are remarkable representations of both a given varietal and Mendocino appellation. While he does not find these every year, when he does, they become a Parducci RESERVE wine, the best of the best. These wines are intended to be elegant today and age with grace.
