"A wine for grown-ups, this is big but balanced and dry in style. It matches impressive layers of just-ripe blackberry and black-plum flavors with a sturdy structure of fine-grained tannins that clean the palate easily. It has considerable depth and focus, indicated by how the dark fruits seem to keep increasing in intensity even on the finish." — Jim Gordon

"Herbaceous aromas and bright citrus flavors give an almost-electric charge to this light-bodied, crisp and appetizing wine. Aromas of snap peas, parsley and fresh-cut grass lead to lemon and grapefruit flavors and a tingly mouthfeel. It's a perfect summer-to-fall drink." — Jim Gordon

Profile
Uvaggio Vermentino is unmistakably Californian. It’s as if the classic, light Italian Vermemtino’s flavor and aroma knobs were dialed as high as they could go..

Pairing
These vibrant wines often taste like passion fruit or citrus, sometimes accented with an herbaceous note. A fruity-zesty balance, a signature of Sauvignon Blanc, is what makes these wines delicious with goat cheese (a staple pairing of France’s Loire Valley). The wine makes the cheese taste creamier.

More About The Wine
East of San Francisco, Lodi is a warm, dry region that’s suitable to just about every grape variety, red or white. Winemaking immigrants from Europe figured this out around 1850. Italian settlers found especially strong success with their native varieties, among them Vermentino; the grape doesn’t require cool nights to retain its bright character.

"This proprietary blend combines 63% Pinot Grigio from Carneros, 22% Traminer from Carneros and a small percentage of Moscato Giallo from Lodi. Together they harmonize in a light, crisp and floral bouquet of apricot, ginger and lemon, never becoming overly fussy and instead focusing entirely on refined refreshment." — Virginie Boone

 Editors’ Choice 

"This bone-dry and floral wine will taste great with simple appetizers like toasted nuts or fresh cheeses. It is very well concentrated and has medium to full body. An opulent texture helps carry the floral, appley, grapefruity flavors into the finish." — Jim Gordon
