2015 Gallica Albariño Rorick Heritage Vineyard - USA, California, Sierra Foothills, Calaveras County (11/26/2018)
A cup of this wine went into the risotto, and the rest went into me. Light peach tones, floral notes, and some honey scents speak to varietal correctness, and the medium body speaks to a California expression of the grape, rather than the more limber Spanish renditions. All that being said, it disappeared rather too quickly. I am glad I left a bottle in the cellar for a bit, as the rounded edges, combined with the atypically rich body, make for a pleasing texture to accompany the delicious flavors.
