This lovely wine opens with orange and floral notes on the nose and palate, adding flavors of apricots, tangerines and lychee. Not too sweet at just 6% residual sugar, this wine will pair with summer’s bounty of fruit desserts and stand up to autumn’s richer, darker confections as well. We love a small glass of this in the evening, on its own. Lonesome Springs Ranch vineyards, Yakima AVA.

This port-style wine made from Petit Verdot contains plum, cassis and a bit of black pepper with light notes of blackberry and anise on the finish. Picture yourself sitting by a cozy fire, perhaps with a good book and a drowsy cat or dog by your side, sipping a small glass of Heart of Darkness. Try this with a little blue cheese and/or dark, slightly bitter chocolate. It’s a perfect evening!
