Mission Briefing

Codename:

We're not in Galicia anymore

With the Fall and Winter Holidays approaching, today’s 2009 Mahoney Vineyards Las Brisas Vineyard Albarino is the perfect white wine companion for your dining and entertaining!

Today’s crisp, delicious wine hails from the winery’s own Las Brisas vineyard in the Carneros region. This cool-climate vineyard benefits from Pacific breezes from the Petaluma Gap, providing beneficial cooling while promoting gradual ripening - creating the perfect Albarino grapes.

Crisp, delicious and value-priced, we suggest keeping plenty of this food-fantastic wine on hand for your Holiday feasts. Pair with a scrumptious turkey dinner, a pot roast or a broiled sea bass.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Lightest straw yellow fading to light primrose and then light honey at the center of the wine. After a soft swirl, skinny, tightly-space legs take a while to form, before slowly gliding down to the wine below.

Smell:

Lemon curd, citrus zest and marzipan lead off. These are followed by fresh apple blossom, succulent lemon custard, dried orange blossom and a hint of honey.

Taste:

Meyer lemon, yellow grapefruit, lemon pelargonium, pineapple and Granny smith apple occupy the forefront. As the wine warms, even just a little, it begins to soften up, revealing fresh pear, white peach, dried nectarine and a hint of subtle white pepper.

Finish:

Long, crisp and delicious with sweet flavors that gradually yield to more tart. After a few moments, a soft, flinty mineral dryness sets in as flavors dwindle.
