Wine Find


April 08, 2009|By Michael Dresser

The once-obscure Spanish grape Albarino is rapidly emerging as one of the best white-wine varietals in California. Few white grapes display as much complexity when young and fresh - and that beats oak aging in many ways. This crisp wine from the alter ego label of Bonny Doon Vineyard bursts on the palate with vibrant flavors of orange, lime, sweet pea, pear, herbs and even a dollop of cherry. Enjoy it this year - especially through the spring and summer. It won't get any better.
