Tasting Notes

Best of Class Sunset Magazine, Double Gold Medal SF Wine Competition. A classic Southern Rhône Valley white blend, our Côtes de Paso Blanc offers a bouquet of cantaloupe, jasmine, and honey. The wine is crisp on the palate with flavors of pear and melon. Delicious to sip on its own, the wine also pairs wonderfully with picnic fare of soft cheeses, shellfish, chicken salad and fresh fruit.
