2018 Edna Valley Albarino
California: San Luis Obispo: Edna Valley
Welcome to a very special Saturday on Wine Spies, dear Operative. So good to see you here, today. If you’re a subscriber to our Daily Dispatch, you’ve likely already viewed our video from Agent Red. Here’s another fun video from winemaker, Adam LaZarre.
Today’s LaZarre Wines 2018 Edna Valley Albarino is lovely to behold, like a jewel shimmering in the glass with its opulent peridot coloration. The nose if fresh and enticing with hallmark characteristics of elderflower, peach, and nectarine. There’s a bit of dried roses and some nice limestone minerality. A little bit of lemon meringue peeks out on the palate flanked by peach, granny smith apple, honeysuckle, and lemon verbena. This is a very nice Albarino with bright and cooling acidity that cranks the fruit up a notch. Serve well chilled with shrimp ceviche and make some new friends.
Agent Red became fast friends with Adam LaZarre back in 2007 when he headed up winemaking for Hahn Estates. They stayed friends and visited with each other throughout the years, but Adam never seemed to have enough of his limited-production wines to satisfy the needs of our Operatives. Today, Adam and his team came through for our Operatives, giving us access to his delightful Albariño in advance of his other partners.
