What makes a dessert Wine a Dessert Wine?
Wow! To my knowledge MOST wines that I drink on a regular basis are over 14% alcohol by volume, and that doesn’t make them a sweet wine. There are many sweet dessert style wines, here are just a few.

MY NEW FAVORITE
Twilight Ridge 2009 Petite Sirah-Lake County
Rich, Lush, Thick mouth fill. Everything a beautiful Petite Sirah should be and in a sweet way. What I love the most about this wine is that it has a nice amount of acids and tannins that balance out the sweetness making it worth drinking a decent size glass of. LOVELY!!!
Our friends Doug and Kat from SUNSET CELLARS produce some really amazing red wines; including a brilliant 2007 Barbera that will knock your socks off!
Don’t be afraid to drink the sweet stuff.
