International Dessert Wines Reviews

Mr. Riggs 2016 Sticky End Viognier
93 points
Bright gold color. Aromas and flavors of ripe stone fruit and dried apricots, lanolin, peach syrup, and pressed linen and turned earth with an lively, sweet full body and a refreshing, medium-long finish with fruit tannins and no oak flavor. This is a wine that comes through with high "Terroir" marks.
93 points $20.99
Mr. Riggs 2014 The Elder Shiraz
88 points
Opaque black violet color. Fruity, spicy, herbal aromas and flavors of eucalyptus, blueberry chutney, menthol tobacco, and vanilla mint fudge with a satiny, tangy, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a tingling, subtle, long finish with elements of spiced cherries and honeyed huckleberries with a suggestion of oak flavor. A rich Late Bottle Vintage style Australian port that will put a pleasurable period on a perfect meal.
