Our second stop was at Village of Elgin Winery where we were treated to a private tasting of some of their most interesting wines. Their selections were more up my alley with sweeter offerings that were easy on the palate. I particularly enjoyed their white port named "Andrew" which blew me away with its smooth and fruity taste. Despite a rather high alcohol content (around 16%), this wine has none of the "burn" you often get. Smooth and easy - as Jim, our host said, "this will sneak up on you!"
We also tried their Four Monkeys label which is available locally at Total Wine (Oracle and Wetmore in Tucson). We enjoyed the Naughty Monkey which is a Moscato which rested easily on tongue. Both the Andrew and Naughty Monkey made the trip home with us.
