Palencia Wine Co. 2020 Albariño, Ancient Lakes of Columbia Valley, $22

By on January 10, 2022

Four times Victor Palencia has achieved Platinum with his Albariño program. Fortunately, he’s grown its production without losing a step. The latest example is remarkable with its brightness and richness as white peach, Granny Smith apple, quince and lemon juice also includes a pinch of tarragon and minerality for a wide range of food pairings, including steamed mussels. Everyone’s kitchen should have a bottle of this chilled and at the ready. Awards: Great Northwest Invitational (best of class/double gold), Best of Sip (Best of class/platinum), Bellingham Northwest (double gold).

Rating: Platinum, 93 points

Production: 777 cases

Alcohol: 12.6%
