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. - P.G. (Jul 2015)
Every new bottling has its own subtle and fresh personality. The 9 grapes tie together perfectly, creating a smooth, layered white wine that can hold its own or stand up to just about any food pairing you dare to serve it with. It is extraordinarily food-friendly, from light salads to the hottest fusion-style cuisine. Regarding the question we're most often asked: 'Were you trying to do this or did your leftovers happen to work well together?' We'll let the success of Evolution speak for itself.
