From:

Carneros region, California

Price:

$24

Serve with:

Roast turkey, salmon or poultry in a cream sauce

This dry white wine from Carneros, the cool region just north of the San Francisco Bay, is exceptional in its concentration, complexity, intensity and similarity to some of the finest wines of France's Alsace region. It shows a distinct flavor of peaches and pears, seasoned with a potpourri of spices - including clove, cinammon and nutmeg. Its texture is creamy and smooth, and its finish is long and elegant.
