This wine smells like a Riesling and a pinot gris mixed together. It tastes like cherry and blood orange, a high amount of minerals, and an aftertaste of spearmint and strawberries. Very good rose wine!

80% Albarino, 20% ? A very summery wine with aromas of peaches on the nose. Its oily, and has a subtle minty / bay leaf character. Good acidity and nicely mineral. The finish is almost chalky. Overall a pure, food friendly wine.

    This wine is so crisp and refreshing. I paired it with oysters on a warm spring day. Quite a combo!

    Salmon-colored in appearance, the wine has a sweet, almost candy-like fragrance (think Sweet Tarts). A crisp, clean flavor profile dominated by notes of watermelon and cucumber with a medium finish. A refreshing wine!

    This unctuous wine has delicious floral and orange aromas and flavors. Make a simple dessert special, or just enjoy this beauty on its own.

    Pale copper in color this rosé is a blend of Grenache and Grenache Blanc. Crisp and delicate with tons of strawberry and peach fruit. Fabulous picnic wine.

    You’ve probably read about how Bonny Doon Vineyard has been cutting programs, changing management, and making other Big Changes. Quietly in the background, the winegrowing folks have completed converting the winery’s Ca’ del Solo vineyard in Salinas Valley to biodynamic viticulture, and the winemakers have produced a lovely wine to showcase it. That the grape is Albariño (along with even more exotic Loureiro and Treixadura, all natives of Portugal) makes this a doubly historic debut.Don’t be surprised at the wine’s lack of color – Albariño grape skins don’t confer hardly any. Just sniff the sweet, nutty aromas of hazelnuts, marzipan, and clover honey, then sip them into your mouth as flavors. The wine is light in body but sizable in personality for a fresh young white; the sweetness holds gently but firmly along with well balanced acid, and there's some rosewater on the finish along with a bit of fresh citrus. Well done all around.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    ELEGANT: Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple,lively

    Tasting Notes:

    Fresh and bright with a pale pink/salmon color reminiscent of a Côtes de Provence Rosé or perhaps even a Vin Gris from Burgundy. Hints of wild strawberry, white cherry, apple blossom, and the barest whiff of spearmint. Palate is quite dry and zesty with pale red fruits, blood orange, citrus, and a lean yet supple finish. But what is most compelling about the wine is its elegance. We deployed far less skin contact than in years past, and in this instance, less is truly more. Delicious today but will develop added richness and aroma with an additional 6-12 months of bottle age.

    ELEGANT: Grapefruit, lemon, pineapple,lively
