Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with green hues. Intense and powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit, grapefruit and gooseberry. A full, crisp and powerful wine showing intense flavors of passionfruit and blackcurrant, with underlying gooseberry tones. This wine has full yet elegant palate, subtle minerality and a well balanced long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Lively green apple, passion fruit and lime peel flavors are bright, vivid and very refreshing. At once smooth and extremely juicy, with plenty of charm and aromatics. Drink now. 86,000 cases made.

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.
