16 J Wilkes Pinot Blanc & Zinfandel Case Special
J Wilkes 16 Pinot Blanc & J Wilkes 16 Zinfandel
The Pinot Blanc (BEST BUY, Wine Enthusiast and 90 points and Gold Medal from Orange County Fair) comes from the cool, foggy, Ocean-adjacent Santa Maria Valley and shows its heritage and location: bright, crisp, elegant and spot on to varietal correctness: bright stone fruit and white blossoms, verve, cut and minerality. This is a white wine easily worth $30 and another 5 years in the cellar. The 2016 J Wilkes Zinfandel, Paso Robles Highlands District comes from an area with very hot days and cold nights, and has an intoxicating aroma of raspberries and spice, and I'm very proud this wine won a Gold Medal and 90 points at the Orange County Fair. These are two great wines that clearly show the cold climate and hot climates of their two viticultural areas, and show the same vintage as expressed. Enjoy!"
