2015 Arbe Garbe "Benandants-Catie's Corner Vineyard" Russian River Valley Malvasia Bianca

SKU #1274172 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Benandants Malvasia Bianca is 100% Malvasia from Catie’s Corner Vineyard. This wine is also fascinating, with aromas of candle wax, lemon custard, caramelized melons, pineapple, guava and a touch of lychee. All the while, there is also a wet, stony minerality in the wine. An amazing effort. It is medium to full-bodied, but incredibly dry, crisp and fresh. These are fascinating wines - make no mistake about it. These are two terrific wines from Italian winemaker Enrico Bertoz, who hails from the Alto Adige sector of Italy. (RP)  (10/2016)

 Arbe Garbe's 2015 Benandants Malvasia Bianca Catie's Corner Vineyard is a real head-turner. Deeply varietal to the core, the 2015 offers tons of Malvasia exoticness and perfume, with beams of supporting acidity that give the wine its freshness and verve. Lemon confit, jasmine and mint are all given an extra kick of brightness on the intensely mineral finish. (AG)  (7/2016)

- 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.

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:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
