Cal-barino is one of the best values in the wine world right now. I think Ian Brand probably makes the best.

Lime pith, ripe pear notes on the exuberant nose.... but the weight on the palate is impressive. Textured, waxy, lively acidity and a long almost saline finish. This is a food wine that can hold its own with Asian or Mediterranean cuisine and slice through the richness and complexity to make its own statement. An impressive introduction to Ian Brand and a stunning value. Kudos!

To date, this has been the best Albarino that I have had from Monterey. Highly recommended.

Tight acidity, lime, green papaya. With tilapia en papillote, asparagus, tomato-pineapple soy medley, and charred miso-honey potatoes.
