Not so much

Not sure I'll be having this wine again. Too much oak.

Calico White
Bergevin Lane Vineyards
Columbia Valley, Walla Walla, Washington

We picked this up this weekend and thought we'd give it a try tonight. Sadly the oak was too much of a predominate flavor for us in this trio of blended grapes. And the alcohol was a little redonk...13.99%. I want to taste the grapes, not set my mouth on fire.

From the bottle:
Calico White is our delicious blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Roussanne grapes. This is a crisp and fresh wine with enticing flavors of citrus, tropical fruits and apricots.
