Description
The Bennett Valley AVA is one of the cooler Sonoma County appellations, as Pacific Ocean breezes enter the valley through the Petaluma Gap. Reflecting its terroir, this wine’s maritime salinity provides the heft to uphold notes of pineapple marmalade, toasted almonds and baked angel food cake on the finish. A beautiful ying-yang of salty, sweet goodness.
