John Updike has nothing on this wine from the Sokol Blosser Winery in Dundee, OR.
Last night we opened the 11th edition of Evolution. It is a blend of 9 different grape varietals that has an enticing tropical aroma. We expected the flavors to mirror this bouquet but found a medium bodied, semi-dry wine with a crisp finish. The alcohol listed was 12% and we knew that the 10-12% range made the wine more food friendly.
Having heard and read about this wine, I was excited to finally find and try it for myself. We paired it with a chicken, vegetable and cheese pie that used brown rice for the crust. What a winning combination!
The label suggests that you chill, pour, sip and then chill (as in chill out). We took their advice.
