These point scores represent gold medals and wines of “exceptional quality”.Of Bordello Blondes the judges said, “Floral aromas and flavors of roses and peony, honeyed peach, and delicate spices with a silky, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length pear sauce, peach sorbet, honeydew, and minerals finish with soft, crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. A very aromatic and lively off-dry sipper.”Lighthouse White was said to exhibit, “Bold, fruity, floral aromas of lychees – linalool, rose petals, green apples, and key lime custard with a satiny, lively, dry-yet-fruity full body and a peppery, subtle, medium-long finish with well-integrated, fruit tannins and no oak. Alluring restrained spicy nose with sleek Riesling flavors to support a very complex savory wine.”The grapes for both of these Riesling Gewurztraminer blends were harvested at Red Willow Vineyard in the Yakima Valley.Each of Westport’s wines benefits a local charity. A portion of the proceeds from Bordello Blondes is donated to the Aberdeen Museum of History. Some proceeds from Lighthouse White assist the Westport Maritime Museum and the Grays Harbor Lighthouse Restoration Fund.Additionally, each of Westport’s wines is commemorated with a sculpture in their 15-acre display garden. The winery’s iconic lighthouse constructed by Humphrey Construction represents Lighthouse White. The Bordello Blonde sculpture has been commissioned and will be unveiled later this summer.The Bordello Blonde label was art created by winery co-founder Kim Roberts. The watercolor for Lighthouse White was painted by Blain Roberts’ surf partner, Darryl Easter, of Camarillo, California. Easter has painted ten of the winery’s labels.Westport Winery Garden Resort is located on the corner of Highway 105 and South Arbor Road halfway between Aberdeen and Westport.
