Tangent Pinot Gris 2018, Paragon Vineyard$20.00Add to cart
“Gris” is the French word for gray and describes the color of these grapes, which can also create a rosé wine. Known as Pinot Grigio in Italy (“Grigio” is Italian for gray) this is an easy-drinking and food-friendly wine. Pale, straw-yellow. Pungent pear skin, lemon pith, honey and floral aromas are lifted by a gingery nuance. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering nicely concentrated pear nectar and Meyer lemon flavors that are brightened by an undercurrent of dusty minerality. Smoothly plays weight off energy and finishes long and spicy, displaying resonating, sharply defined citrus fruit character. 90 points Vinous.
Tangent Sauvignon Blanc 2017$20.00Add to cart
Owned and farmed by the Niven family, the Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley of California provides the grapes for this wine. Originally planted in 1973, these are most likely the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines south of the North Coast. With the Pacific Ocean lying only fi ve miles to the west, its infl uence creates one of the longest growing seasons in the state. As in the cool climates of both France and New Zealand, the grapes leisurely ripen, creating fruit of structured minerality and good acid backbone. A rare example of a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc, the Tangent Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is bright and racy. Full of flavors of zesty citrus, guava and passionfruit with a chalky minerality and a hint of salinity. This wine highlights all the benefi ts of their cool climate estate vineyard, ideal for growing this vibrant varietal. We like to think of this wine as the perfect combination of Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand and Sancerre – bursting with fruit flavors and balanced with the perfect amount of racy acidity. 91 Points Tasting Panel.
