2017 Cowhorn Spiral 360 $15
30% Viognier, 40% Marsanne, 30% Roussanne
Rich fruit flavors of apricot and mango take lead and are rounded out by notes of honey and ginger. The French oak influence is apparent in this wine’s opulence and the subtle notes of baking spice on the finish. This wine is food friendly, but our favorite way to enjoy it is on the patio after a long summer day. Natural Biodynamic. Was $25 now $15
