2004 Ca' del Solo Big House White ($10)

WINE FIND

May 17, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This California white wine from the House of Bonny Doon is one of the usual suspects in wine warden Randall Grahm's lineup of high-quality beverages. This clean, crisp, dry yet fruity wine - guarded by a fierce-looking but very protective screw cap - assaults the taster with flavors of pear, citrus fruit, melons, peach, honey and apple. It then finishes off the unsuspecting palate with a shank-thrust of grassy sauvignon blanc - a co-conspirator with viognier, chenin blanc, French colombard, pinot blanc and marsanne in this criminally decadent blend. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese dishes.
