Have you ever craved “dusty” Cabernet from the Rutherford Bench? How about a crisp Riesling from the Niagara Escarpment? A true wine lover (myself included) loves them all. But one day I realized I had no idea what I was really talking about when I used the words – ría, bench, slope, and scarp – so familiar to us all. What exactly is a ría? Did I just scan a scarp?
