Vöcal 2014 Alfaro Vineyard Grüner Veltliner (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Editors' Choice

This is a fascinating look at this grape, which was grown in a cool climate and given a bit of bottle age. Aromas of mango Popsicle, underripe banana, botanical extracts and mashed nuts show on the nose. There's an almost greasy texture to the viscous palate, where orang pith and unique Thai-like herb and spice flavors converge. It's a very heady white wine. Matt Kettmann
