The Full Review

The high alcohol eventually comes center stage, but only for a bow, allowing other aromas to have a role, which is not often the case at 14.5%. Peach and apples, lemon and lime oil dance around here - due to stainless steel fermentation - among notes of hazelnut and coconut, from some time in French oak. The acidity garnered from warm and breezy, cool and foggy Monterey gives this wine balance, not allowing it to overwhelm. Also, it’s $13 and under screw cap, so grab it, put it in your VinePair tote and we’ll meet you at the thing.
