Benson Ranch Young Vine Nero d'Avola Rosato 2020

2020. My second February enjoying a bottle of this delicious Rosato! The fruit flavors and crisp finish paired so well with marinated tomatoes.
I need to order more than one bottle of the next vintage so I can try it in the summer…

Out to the Meadow Chenin Blanc Blend 2020

I’m not a “natural wine” devotee necessarily, but I am a Martha devotee.

Out to The Meadow is almost always one of my favorites in her line up. Chenin driven, this wine shows the variety’s funkier side on the nose (honeysuckle, wet wool, hay, gray stones). On the palate, it balances sweet (honey, honeysuckle) and sour (incredible tart, barely ripe green apple, white nectarine); fruity, vegetal and just the right amount of bitter (at least for those of us with an bias towards Italian whites) with Vermentino’s unmistakable salty fennel/herbal/grapefruit pith on the finish. Have no idea what “green hungarian” and “chasselas doré” add to the blend, but I trust the master and her modern interpretation of what a century old California field blend would have looked and tasted like.

Wet wool? Living by the beach my wool suits get that funk, not sure I want that smell when I open a bottle 🤷🏼‍♂️🫣
