Palmina Tocai Friulano Santa Ynez Valley Honea Vineyard 2006

External Review by Morrell & Company:

Tocai Friulano is a white Italian variety that is at ease both in a rustic café or frasca, or at an elegant dinner in a white-table cloth restaurant. Its versatility allows it to be paired with a wide variety of foods - spicy, hearty, savory - and is the only wine that pairs with asparagus! A subtle bouquet of almond blossom and the first springtime perfume from a mimosa acacia tree mingle with pear and a hint of exotic sandalwood. Delicate, fresh and inviting, a first sip unveils notes of fuji apple, restrained spicy tangs of fennel and French tarragon and just ripe d'anjou pear.

Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula, who taught him to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and who was a spark in Steve’s life. After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less
