Okay, so I’m sneaking one in on you! Albariño from California? Is this possible? Well yes, it is. While California Albariño has generally seemed to me to be too high pitched and lean, this Verdad Albariño retains the fine acid and even mineral notes of the grape, while pairing it with unusually rich, yet not tropical fruit flavors. There’s a touch of tannin here, adding wonderful mouthgrab on the palate and making this an excellent food wine. 90pts
