Wine Review: Tears of Dew is consistently one of my favorite dessert wines every year. It is affordable and just stunning. Its color is an attractive golden yellow. It opens with a fragrant and inviting orange and apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced, and quite viscous. The flavor profile is a delicious ripe apricot with notes of orange marmalade. The finish is sweet, yet pleasant, and enjoyable. This gorgeous dessert wine would be perfect for finishing off your Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromatically generous, with ripe stonefruit & lychee character. The Muscat Blanc grape brings a bouquet of floral tones to the nose – iris root, jasmine and orange blossom. Though intensely sweet, this vintage holds a crisp, lemony acidity which balances the wine nicely, and should confer good longevity to the primary fruit aromas. With such an intensely sweet, crisp wine, look for contrasting flavors and textures: creamy, custard-based desserts like crème caramel; spiced and complex treats, like ginger cookies; or a selection of quality cheeses, both aged and creamy, are all good bets.
