Wade Wolfe scored his 30th career Platinum, which places him in a tie for seventh on the all-time list. Three of the most recent are for his work with this brilliant Spanish white grape, which the Ph.D in plant genetics from University of California-Davis asked the Crawford family to plant for him in their vineyard near Prosser, Wash. This screams Albariño with its hints of quince, Bosc pear, lemon curd and minerality that are bathed in beautiful acidity. Awards: Seattle Wine Awards (gold), Bellingham Northwest (gold).
