Review date: April 11, 2017

Wine Review: This almost clear colored Albarino from California is very good. It opens with a mild lemon bouquet with a hint of apricot. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and clean. The flavor profile is mild mineral infused green apple with notes of Anjou pear and white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger last for quite some time. I would pair this tasty Albarino with grilled swordfish. Enjoy- Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine shines with the classic characteristics of Albarino produced in its original home, the Rías Baixas region of Spain. Aromas of tangerine, and grapefruit dominate while delicate hints of lemongrass round out the nose. Honey and Meyer lemon accompany a crisp and pleasing mineral finish. Drink now and pair with sizzling Moroccan prawns.
