2014 Passaggio Wines New Generation Pinot Grigio California
Nearing the 10 Year Anniversary of Passaggio Wines, Cynthia Cosco owner and winemaker continues to follow her passion and it's truly evident in each bottle and varietal. "I believe something magical happens when you bring wonderful friends, awesome food, and great wines together." are her words to live by. From day one those first 25 cases the quality is so consistent as it is today and almost 1700 cases produced in 2017.
Passaggio Wines is all grown up with a beautiful tasting room to introduce wine lovers to her varietal offerings located at 25 East Napa Street Suite C in Sonoma. It is here where you will find Cindy chatting with customers about her story and wines. I have even heard her rock star status offers "signed" bottles. Not far away is her newest accomplishment "my very own production facility." Here is where the magic continues (22020 Carneros Vineyard Way Suite 2 Sonoma) as she meticulously creates and nurtures each barrel produced.
Tonight's 2014 New Generation Pinot Grigio is welcomed with the heat we are experiencing in the Midwest. Aromas of sweet pear, ripe cantaloupe with hints of fresh lemon and wild daisy's leap from the glass. Love the crisp character on the nose.
The mouth is a citric blast with juicy pear, pink grapefruit and ripe melon with hints of lemon zest.The finish is long and full of fruit. Really nice refreshing Pinot Grigio Cindy.
A stop on the Sonoma Square is always a treat and so is a stop at Passaggio Wines!
