Why we're drinking this
This value is coming straight from California, it is astounding and there’s no doubt that this wine showcases its pure Californian roots. California wines have their own identity, savoury quality and a silky smoothness that is irresistible. You’ll want to drink this wine now, but you could age it a few years too.

Tasting note

This is a classic with a great value! Made to drink with a plate of antipasto while the pizza cooks or pasta boils, then takes you and the famiglia straight through the main course. It’s not overly fancy, just good, honest vino.
