91 points “Randall Grahm’s blend of 55% Roussanne, 26% Grenache Blanc and 19% Picpoul Blanc shows sliced honeydew, wet stone and a flash of topicality on the delicate nose. The mouthfeel is steely with layers of tense energy, showing lime pith and faint green banana, as well as lemon blossoms lasting long on the finish." -M.K., Wine Enthusiast, December 2015

“The baked apple and poached pear flavors have a very appealing spicy side, with plenty of elegance and details of toasted nuts, citrus zest and flowers. The finish is punctuated by a delicate, creamy texture and fresh acidity. Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2018. 497 cases made.” –MW (August 2013)
90 Points “For something different, it's always wise to turn to Bonny Doon and see what tricks winemaker Randall Grahm has up his sleeve. Gravitas is pretty much a white Bordeaux-style blend, except for the small splash of Orange Muscat (2.5 percent) that lends a floral note. The majority of the composition is Semillon and Sauvignon blanc. The wine is crafted in a soft, round, approachable style that emphasizes the fig and melon character of the Semillon. The Sauvignon delivers aromas of grapefruit and citrus as well as a bit of minerality and acid backbone. Delicious and delightful; a superb summer sipper." - Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online
Until 1989 Albariño was one of the rarest wine varieties in the world, rarely glimpsed outside the Iberian Peninsula. Since that time, this light yet vibrant white grape has become a darling of wine geeks worldwide for its preternatural ability to pair with all types of seafood, cheese, and salty dishes.
