Anthony Road Sweet Dream

Anthony Road has developed since 1973 from a grape-growing enterprise overlooking Seneca Lake in New York's Finger Lakes to a highly-regarded winemaking facility owned by John and Ann Martini. Since 2000, Johannes Reinhardt, a native of Germany whose family has been involved in the wine business since 1438, has been the winemaker.

Sweet Dream 2006 Seneca Lake Vignoles:

This dessert wine has 7% residual sugar, nicely balanced with a touch of acidity that prevents the cloying effect lesser such wines exhibit.

The character of the vignoles grape, a French-American hybrid, has a natural balance that was preserved in the winemaking process here. As is the case with any well-made dessert wine, it will work well alone as well as with something deliciously decadent such as, say, cheesecake, fruits or chocolate.

The suggested retail price is $16.99.
