Located north of Sonoma County and accessed by a winding road that runs through a fairytale forest filled with towering redwoods, the Anderson Valley AVA is an old logging territory that’s now an unpretentious, laid-back area that happens to produce some of the finest cool climate grapes in America.
Aged for about half a year in French Oak and sourced from a family winery too small to ever have its wines found through normal distribution channels, the only place you could find this wine is their tasting room…until now. Sporting a Gold Medal and 90+ point score under its winery label, it's available here for about half the original price!
Light Bright White
This was so light, crisp and not at all too sweet. In fact, lemon and green apple were the most prominent flavors. We had it with Thai food and it was very good.
Great with spicy food!
We had this with jambalaya and it was a great compliment to it!
Lovely, clean white
Really nice, lean, flinty white. I didn't know what to expect, but we have ordered this several times.
I’m a fan of Gewürztraminers and was interested to try this blend with a sweeter edge. Unfortunately I’d say it was just fine — an interesting experiment but the resulting wine didn’t quite know what it wanted to be and didn’t taste worth the effort.
Delightful summer wine
Opened this bottle on the 4th of July. Well-balanced. Notes of pear. Smooth finish. Not too sweet. Overall nice bottle at an excellent value.
Looking for something to go with spicy foods?
A few summers ago we visited a vineyard in an agricultural area where there are a lot of Mexican restaurants. We asked the proprietor what he drinks when he's eating hot or spicy. He recommended something on the sweet side. While this isn't exactly sweet, it complements Cajun gumbo or etouffee very well.
Great summer refresher
This wine is light, bright and perfect for summer. I was concerned that it might be a little sweet for my taste, but it was crisp and refreshing.
Light & uplifting
This is a great wine for sipping on the front porch; refreshing and light, slightly sweet
Great Summer Wine
Though not warm here yet, this is going to be a great summer afternoon drinker. It's not too sweet and just right for us.
Very Good with Orange Chicken & Stir Fried Veggies
Perfect with our orange chicken stir fry. As Cam said, better when close to cellar temperature; I liked it even a little warmer than that. - I thought it might be too sweet, but it wasn't - at least with this dish. More toward a dry Riesling.
