Sokol Blosser Evolution White Blend
|Region||United States, Oregon|
In the beginning...there weren't a whole lot of choices for a really great white blend. Then, through a stroke of luck and/or general intention, nine grapes-Chardonnay and Pinot Gris among them-came together and really liked each other. Together, they produced a wine that was delightful, sublime and just plain yummy. And we called this wine Evolution. Wine lovers loved it. They paired it with spicy Asian, Indian, Mexican and Caribbean foods. Or with a jambalaya. Word spread. And, soon, Evolution Wine was advancing the entire wine universe once bottle at a time.
A nonvintage blend, the Evolution is as clever as it gets. This 18th edition (the edition numbers serve a similar function to a vintage date) melds several different grapes into an aromatic, lushly detailed whole. Stone and tropical fruits abound, loading the palate with flavors of peaches, cream and lemon meringue. It's thoroughly delicious without a hint of wood.
