Cobden Wini’s award-winning blend of Marsanne (75%) and Roussanne (25%); Two white grape varieties somewhat uncommon in California but commonplace in the Rhone Valley of France. The 2019 blend is from the Dalton Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. The wine is loaded with notes of wild flowers, honey, pear, with hints of citrus oil. The mouthfeel is rich and luscious, with a lingering finish of quince and honeysuckle. This wine will pair great with any fish, pork, or poultry dish. So grab a bottle and broaden your wine horizons.
Dalton Vineyard, located in the Sierra Foothills AVA and Calaveras County, is a hidden gem for grape growing. The 300 acre vineyard sits at an elevation of about 1500 ft. which helps keep temperatures down and makes it ideal for Rhone varieties. They have several varieties of grapes planted, but we take a field blend of Marsanne and Roussanne each year.
