Wine Review: This coral-colored wine from Calera opens with a pleasant watermelon and rose petal bouquet with hints of strawberry and rhubarb. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and round. The flavor profile is a slightly sour cherry and watermelon blend with notes of steeped oolong tea. I also detected hints of oregano and a touch of Maraschino cherry in the background. The finish is dry and refreshing. Serve at the beach with chilled shrimp cocktail. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made using grapes from a prized single vineyard in the Central Coast's Cienega Valley AVA, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir displays tantalizing layers of grapefruit, guava, wild strawberry and rose petals. On the palate, bright acidity adds poise and purity to the vibrant citrus, berry and tropical flavors as they glide to a long, juicy finish.
