Three Pack
I don't normally associate wine with mass transit systems, but this Chardonnay deal was too good to pass up, so let's just agree to ignore the label art and the motto: ' For the commuter in all of us.' Because: this is a great little deal. The label says Central Coast, because they incorporate a small amount of fruit from Santa Maria Valley, but the majority of this wine comes from the southwestern part of Paso Robles. West Paso is closer to the ocean, and the further south you get, the closer you are to the Templeton Gap, which brings cooling sea breezes through a break in the Santa Lucia Mountains. Buying Central Coast and getting West Paso is a little like buying a bus ticket and finding out it's actually a Ferrari. Aromas and flavors of baked apple and juicy pear, plus citrus zest, ginger, cinnamon, and cream. The merest hint of oak. As perfect for the Thanksgiving turkey as it is for weeknight takeout.
