Cross Keys Vineyards 2009 Ali d'Oro
Shenandoah Valley, Virginia


Ali d'Oro is Italian for wings of gold, which might describe the elation felt after taking your first sip of this rich dessert wine. Made from late harvest Traminette, a hybrid varietal based on Gewürztraminer, Ali d'Oro boasts fragrant aromas and rich apricot and honey flavors. It is best enjoyed on its own.
