Saracina Atrea the Choir 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows off some pineapple and coconut sun tan lotion notes early on the nose over notes of orange and pine nuts. Rather ripe and round on entry, this lacks just a touch of acid but does remain fairly bright. Lots of pear, dried lime and candied orange flavors come out on the palate along with a floral top note, but the fruits seem a bit meaty and roasted, leading to a lean, short finish that shows a touch of alcohol. 85pts

Saracina was named after a centuries-old farmhouse and vineyards in Tuscany where owners John Fetzer and Patty Rock spent their honeymoon. The main ranch is home to Saracina Vineyards, a small-production, state-of-the art, California Certified Organic (CCOF) winery and the first wine caves in Mendocino County. Working with winemaker, Alex MacGregor, and winemaking consultant, David Ramey, they produce stylistically unique wines with lush California fruit and silky, soft tannins. Atrea, their second brand, focuses on interesting, quirky Rhone-style blends. Read less

Reminiscent of a classic Pinot Grigio with floral nuances that come through the nose; balanced, smooth and easy drinking just like a PG.
