2008 Bonny Doon "Ca' del Solo" Monterey County Albariño

SKU #1045491

91 points from Wine Enthusiast: "Few winemakers in California understand acidity better than Randall Grahm, and he provides plenty of it in this brilliantly clean, bone-dry wine. It cleanses the mouth with scoury flavors of lychee, lime, nectarine, minerals and peppery nasturtium, with a foresty, resinous quality suggesting pine cone." (8/1/2009) Ca' del Solo is Bonny Doon's biodynamic vineyard, located in Monterey County, where the soils are surprisingly ideal for this rare Iberian varietal. The green-tinged 2008 vintage sings with ginger, lemon and sage aromas that really blossom on the palate. There's a slight almond undertone on the wine that keeps it from becoming too ethereal. Try it with oysters on the half shell or Santa Barbara spot prawns grilled with garlic, lemon, olive oil and chile flakes.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
