Wine from California

According to the Wine Institute, there are over are over 200 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in the United States and over 100 AVAs in California alone.

Each AVA is recognized as having unique growing conditions such as climate (i.e. temperature, humidity), soil (i.e. drainage, acidity) or altitude that results in certain characteristics in the finished wine.

When an AVA is designated on a wine label, 85% of the grapes used to make that wine must have come from that AVA. If a non-AVA, Appellation or region, is designated on a wine label, at least 75% of the grapes must come from that area. It should be noted that the designation of an AVA does not guarantee the quality of the wine, but may sometimes infer a general characteristic of the wine.

In very general terms, California wine grape growing regions can be divided into the following:

Sonoma Smith Winery 2007 Goldensong

This is a rarity. A delightfully delicious and aged wine made from 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Semillon. This combination of grapes is how many fine White Bordeaux wines are created. Fascinating melange of lime, pear, honeysuckle, and vanilla at first whiff. Texture is both creamy and zesty at the same time.
