Hold The Mayo

Published November 25, 2012


I mean hold it close to your heart. The Mayo Family Winery, who has been making wines for generations and all family employees, serves one winner after another and varietals across the board. Their Sauv Blanc has a wonderful crisp acidity yet not overwhelming in gripping grapefruit. My fave whitie was a Pinot Gris with banana thickness and lovely body.

On the dark side, my fave was the Ursus, which is a Bordeaux style blend. It was the perfect pot roast wine with deep red cherry flavors, nice acidity, and a long yummy smokey peppery finish.

More from my appellation adventures in this region.
