Wine Review: This pale straw colored white blend from Paso will appeal to readers who enjoy Chateauneuf de Pape Blancs. It opens with a pineapple and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a classic CDP Blanc style. Displaying tasty mild mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of almond and touch of honey. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and would pair nicely with trout almondine. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The driving force behind our 2015 bottling of Three Sisters White is an elegant minerality. We put Grenache Blanc in the driver’s seat for this vintage to highlight the strengths of this beautiful varietal. The Viognier component was dialed back to 20% but still makes its presence known with floral aromatics. The 13% Roussanne adds richness to the mid-palate while the 10% Picpoul Blanc punctuates the acid profile. The resulting cuvee is one of composed restraint that allows all of the components to shine without creating any shadows.
