Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This vintage of Albariño is again much like one from its homeland of Spain; it has a briny, somewhat salty character. It is a bit floral, and has a mineral, wet stone nose. It tastes fresh and crisp, of tangerine zest and mandarin oranges, and has a honeyed richness along with nice acid balance. It is full-bodied, but with a soft mouthfeel, and finishes with the flavor of grapefruit. This wine is definitely the most versatile wine in the world with any kind of fish. I especially like it with sautéed scallops.

Critical Acclaim

"A wonderful, amazingly rewarding wine, certainly one of California's best Albarinos. If there's any oak at all, it's insignificant. What stars is brilliant Edna Valley acidity and racy flavors of citrus fruits, pears, white flowers and white peppery spices. The perfect cocktail wine. Editors' Choice."
