2009 Tempranillo Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard
2011 Albarino Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard
This is one of my favorite wines to bring out when I want to introduce people to a really good white wine. It never fails to impress. I've bought several cases (other vintages) in the past - and where are they now? All gone! It's goes fast.
The previous vintage made the Chronicle's Top 100 Wines of 2011 list.
Case price reduces the per bottle price from $22 to $15. A fantastic everyday wine.
2011 Rose of Grenache Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard
It won a gold in the Sunset International Wine competition in 2012.
To taste any or all of these wines in the Bay Area, come to the March 23 annual Rhone Rangers event at Fort Mason. The public tasting is Saturday from 3-6 pm.
