Sonoma, CA- Extremely aromatic and floral with citrus peel and rose petal aromas. The oak is restrained and in the background. On the palate one finds tropical and citrus flavors with lead to a crisp and refreshing acidity. A wine ready to drink.
Wine grapes have been planted in Sonoma County since the first European settlers arrived. In 1812, Russian immigrants began planting vines along the coast. In the 1820s, Spanish monks planted vines as they built their missions. In 1855, Hungarian Agoston Haraszthy founded Buena Vista, which bills itself as California’s first premium winery, still in operation today.
