2015 AlbarinoNapa Valley California
The Abrente Albarino is a joint project of the very talented Morgan Twain Peterson, founder of Bedrock Wines and son of Joel Peterson, founder of Ravenswood Winery, and Michael Havens, the first producer of Albarino in the New World (and even made the first celebrated Sine Que Non wine).
Inspired by the wines of Galicia and northern Portugal, the two winemakers strive for freshness and pure aromatics. With this wine, they have hit it on the head as this beauty shows aromas of tangerine, yellow apple, jasmine and ginger along with flavors of orchard and citrus fruit with a supple texture and a long finish. 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (6/14). 13% ABV MON
