Wine Review: This 20th edition Evolution is a unique well-balanced blend of 8 different grapes. You can distinguish a few such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat. This light straw colored blend has a shy floral bouquet with hints of spice and oak. The body of Lucky No. 9 is light and the palate is smooth, lively with tangerines, green apple and light grapefruit. The finish is nicely dry with a slightly tart grapefruit extended finish. I would pair this white blend with grilled curry shrimp served with a lime cilantro dipping sauce. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: Evolution Lucky No. 9 is both complex and approachable, with an intensely aromatic and flavorful blend of white varietals that create a wine with depth of interest and versatility in pairing. Spicy and floral on the nose, this wine is lush and tropical on the palate, with a soft and round sweetness that is tempered by a burst of citrus, leaving the finish clean and crisp. We may dare to say that Evolution goes with just about anything, but especially shines when sipped alongside Thai curry, Tandoori chicken, spicy tuna rolls, or a poolside on a hot summer day.
