B.R. Cohn Woody White NV – California

This is a wild child. It opens with a nose of... honeysuckle? key lime? The tastes are grapefruit, floral, and maybe some mango. It somehow has an overall “tropical” feel to it, and is crisp and full (but not creamy) at the same time. Very unusual, and we like unusual. It tastes like the bastard love child of a Sauvignon Blanc and a Roussanne/Marsanne, although the label does not indicate what grapes are used. We try to evaluate wines without input from the winemaker, but will send them a note to see what this is made of. House (depending on availability)/Yes. $15
