DaVero Falco Consumnes River Vermentino 2010 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes (2009 label shown above, 2010 wine reviewed):

Fragrant spicy pear on the nose

Medium bodied on the palate

Rich finish of citrus and apples with a nice beam of acidity


Here's an extremely small production Vermentino from California.  While DaVero doesn't make much of this wine, it's a beauty that demonstrates the potential for this Italian varietal in California.  There's a lot of expressive fruit flavor with nice acidity and an overall pleasing profile.

I purchased this at the winery for $22 and opened it with family the following evening.  Raise a glass!
