Tasting Kit Details
Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
Bodkin Wines, Lake County, CA
Gold Medal Winner
40 Under 40
Maker: Chris Christensen, Bodkin Wines
Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Sandy Bend Vineyard, Lake County.
Notes: Lemon-lime and passionfruit; a bone dry, lightly bubbly wine with 0g of sugar.
Street Cred: Maker Chris was named the "Sauvignon Blanc Savant" by Food and Wine.
Awards: Gold, 93 Points — Sunset Mag Int'l Wine Competition.
About: Chris at Bodkin Wines was recently dubbed the “Bubbles Innovator” on Wine Enthusiast’s 40 under 40 Tastemaker list. He's credited as the first American winemaker to make a Sparkling Sauv Blanc - and now it's in a can.
Handley Cellars, Anderson Valley, CA
Maker: Randy Schock (winemaker), Lulu Handley (owner)
Composition: 100% Pinot Gris from Handley Estate vineyards in Anderson Valley.
Notes: White nectarine, guava, lemongrass – a dry, medium-bodied white wine.
About: Handley is known for minimal-intervention, food-friendly wines, and particularly for their California spin on Alsation white wines. Winemaker Randy calls this wine, “Golden Sun Drops” — think peach and apple blossom aromas with notes of guava, stone fruit, and bright acidity.
J Dusi, Paso Robles, CA
100+ Year Old Vines
Maker: Janell Dusi
Composition: 100% Zinfandel from 50% Dante Dusi Vineyard, 50% Paper St. Vineyard in Paso Robles.
Notes: Dark berries, vanilla, and spice.
About: Grapevines were Janell’s playground as a child. Her family owned some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California for four generations. Now, she’s bringing a whole new perspective to the family farming tradition by putting Paso Robles Zinfandel in a can. This Old Vine Zin captures the best of two different vineyards - big and spicy elements from Paper Street vineyard, and soft, earthy flavors from Dusi vineyard. The result? A perfectly balanced wine full of dark berries, vanilla, and spice.
