Top 10 Holiday Wines

Carmel Road 2012 "Liberated" Riesling
Arroyo Seco, California

Subjected to the dense fog and fierce winds coming in from Monterey Bay, the Arroyo Seco AVA is one of the coldest wine regions in California. However, this harsh weather creates an ideal environment for the bright and crisp Riesling crafted by Carmel Road. The 2012 "Liberated" Riesling is a fragrant wine with a pronounced minerality and aromas of nectarine and ripe citrus.

Rating: 13.5/20
