Friday, June 11, 2021 - Impulse Purchase @ Costco. 12.5% abv - $11
Served @ 10c/50f with Breaded Cod, Fries & Caprese salad. Pale yellow in the glass, citrus on the nose; lemon/lime with green apple prevalent. A little effervescent zip on the palate; lighter-bodied, fruity, yet crisp with prominent acidity refreshing the palate. Short to medium finish.

I had a bottle of 2018 Dobson Sonoma Coast (CA) Albariño ($15 – 90 Pts) that I had opened for an informal taste comparison. The color of the wine was the same, no differences were distinguishable. However, there seemed to be some stylistic differences, sort of like 'Old World' contrasted with 'New World' versions. The Dobson was not as astringent and seemed a little softer in comparison, with more prominent apricot and honeysuckle notes. There was no 'zip' apparent in the Dobson but it seemed a little smoother with a rounder feel in the mouth and had a nice, longer, minerally finish.
