SALEKenneth Volk 2012 Touriga Nacional
Featured in our Gold Wine of the Month Club
- Paso Robles AVA
A Portuguese varietal that is traditionally used in the production of Port and red table wines in Portugal, Touriga Nacional is not very well known in the United States, but several new vineyard plantings have popped up in recent years across California’s diverse growing regions. The Kenneth Volk 2012 Touriga Nacional is a blend of fruit from Paso Robles and Lodi with aromas of ripe plum, culinary sage, and lavender that are complemented by intense fruit flavors of ripe boysenberry and Bing cherry. On the palate, the wine is smooth and balanced with a lingering spicy finish.
