Winemaker Notes

Made in the traditional style of a Rias Baixas Albarino, this wine is pure and vibrant. Aromas of mandarin orange, banana and stone fruit lead the way - these flavors are also highlighted on the palate along with a slightly salty characteristic - showcasing the estate vineyard's coastal influence. This Albarino has a rich, round mouthfeel, finishing with refreshingly crisp acidity.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Tangent Albariño is attractive and pure. TASTING NOTES: This wine succeeds where others fail and have produced a wine of excellence and depth. Its superb aromas and flavors of chalk, mineral, spice, and dried fruit should pair famously with steamed clams in butter and garlic. (Tasted: December 17, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Edna Valley Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Central Coast wines like Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhône Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest to southeast orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity and an increase in plantings over the last couple of decades. Thick skins allow it to withstand the humid conditions of its homeland, Rías Baixas, Spain, free of malady, and produce a weighty but fresh white. Somm Secret—Albariño claims dual citizenship in Spain and Portugal. Under the name Alvarinho, it thrives in Portugal’s northwestern Vinho Verde region, which predictably, borders part of Spain’s Rías Baixas.
