Tasting Notes

This quincy, floral, pear-packed white is partner to Randall Grahm's flagship red Rhône blend. Deliciously ripe and round, boasting a balanced blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussane. This wine begs for a partnership with roast poultry and potato gratin.

Staff Pick Notes

Are you a fan of rich, buttery whites? Maybe you're seeking an alternative to Chardonnay or a wild card for a blind tasting? If your answer was yes to any of those this decadent Grenache Blanc, Rousanne blend from Bonny Doon has your name all over it.

Indulge yourself. This bottle is an experience that will elevate even the most casual evening into an occasion to remember.
