Farm Girl 2012 Kaitlin Rayann White, Columbia Valley, $14

By on December 29, 2013

farm-girl-labelBest Buy! Robert Smasne, one of the most prolific and talented winemakers in Washington, created this brand as a tribute to his daughter. This blend of white Rhône varieties is effusive with its tones of tropical fruit, starting with aromas of pineapple, mango, tutti frutti, Uncola and light toast. That fruit remains bright on the palate with flavors of lychee and  jasmine, backed by fresh pear amid sharp acidity. A touch of pear peel adds to the lengthy finish.

Rating: Excellent
