Bodegas Campante Vina Reboreda Blanco 2009
Blend: 40% Treixadura, 20% Godello, 20% Torrontes and 20% Palomino
The 2009 Vina Reboreda Blanco is a blend of 40% Treixadura, 20% Godello, 20% Torrontes, and 20% Palomino. Medium straw-colored, it displays an alluring nose of mineral, peach, and a hint of tropical fruits. On the palate it is dry, crisp, and assertive with mineral and fruit cocktail flavors in the forefront. It will provide enjoyment over the next 1-2 years.
Pale peach skin color. Musky pear and pit fruit aromas complicated by a hint of herbs. Juicy but a bit loose-knit, offering bitter fruit skin and herbal flavors and a late jolt of lemon zest. This wine's mix of richness and energy should make it very flexible at the table.
Pretty flavors of peach and honeysuckle mingle in this round, silky white, which has grace notes of herb and green almond, with a crisp, clean finish. Drink now.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production...
Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.
Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
