There are many components to wine that influence what you end up tasting, but the main players are acidity, tannin, alcohol and residual sugar.

The key is to maintain some sort of balance, which is achieved by tweaking the components. In this sweet wine from Eastern Washington, the balance is achieved by maintaining a higher level of acid. That helps keep the orchard fruit flavors crisp and light instead of simply quaffing sugar water.

Sherry: “A glass of fall with flavors of pear, apple and honey.” (3 stars out of 5)

Chris: “Fragrant honeysuckle and rich flavors of pear, honey and apple. (3.5 stars out of 5)

Available from $8 to $11.
