Cowan Cellars Ribolla Gialla Russian River Valley Sonoma 2012

What is the color of this? It isnít yellow. It isnít a rosť. It isnít brown (by any stretch). But it is beguiling. The flavor is more fig than any other fruit ... but then some citrus creeps in. Perhaps some cream on the attack with melon and acacia flower. The finish of fig and melon is joined by basil, mineral and a touch of nuttiness. The finish is clean. 11.7% alc. With oven-roasted shrimp, assorted, random cheeses - Roaring 40's blue (worked incredibly well!), Meadow Creek Grayson, brie, olives (again, worked very well), bread. 04.01.17. Recommended.
