Winemaker Josh Stein Notes
This award winning, inaugural release comes from Los Carneros, the AVA which straddles Napa and Sonoma counties. It was and remains the original North Coast ocean-exposure area, allowing for high acidity along with the growth restraints from the climate and soil type to force lots of flavor in the grapes. The nose is full of lemon and lime, sweet mandarins, and wild flowers; the long, long finish gives a rich, creamy, zesty mix of grapefruit, lemon, lime, and fresh-peeled mandarin—just a hint of sweetness balanced against the acidity, making for a perfect food wine. I planned for and made with release with foods I like to eat in mind: spicy Asian and Latino dishes where acidity is needed to balance against rich flavors and a full bodied wi ...more... ne is necessary to augment the depth of flavors in the cuisines. Only Gewürztraminer would do. Harvest Date: September 4th, 2009 pH: 3.28 TA: 9.38 g/L 0.87% R.S. Every purchase of this wine--and all Stein Family Wines--directly translates into college scholarship and support funds for the children of wine workers. Read more at steinfamilywines.com/donations.
