2008 Clayhouse "Adobe White" Central Coast White Blend (Previously $12)

SKU #1057888

This is the wine that will keep you fueled and refreshed while sitting or standing for hours on end on a hot day in front of a much hotter grill. A blend of 22% Viognier, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Grenache Blanc, 16% Roussanne, 6% Chardonnay, 5% Chenin Blanc and 16% Princess, which is somewhat akin to Muscat but has no seeds, is perfect for keeping your thirst quenched. Flavors of honeysuckle, jasmine, cantaloupe and passion fruit are wildly expressive and keep you coming back for more. I'm incredibly tough on blends like this but this one passed with flying colors keeping the acidity high and the residual sugar to a noticeable minimum. (Bryan Brick, K&L)

United States

- 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.

Sub-Region:

California

- 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.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
