Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Based in Monterey, founded in 1986, the name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate.” Straw with simple aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate mango and peachy flavors with underlying sweetness adding some vanilla notes. Creamy finish, medium length, overall good value for 10 bucks.

Based on other ratings I think we got a bad bottle. This was sour with no depth.

Pineapple, peach, vanilla (back label)
Decent, drinkable, deliverable. Minerality and acid with a touch of creaminess.
