Remarkably consistent year-on-year. Fragrant white blossom and vanilla notes lead to ripe comice pear and buttercream layers on the palate, balanced by refreshing acidity.

Domaine Carneros Brut RoséRose wines are often believed to be made only from pinot noir, but many including ours have some chardonnay added. In creating our Rosé, we worked to create a wine of great balance using pinot noir and chardonnay, but at the same time, emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics to a greater extent than is evident in the Brut or Le Rêve. Foods that pair exceedingly well with the Rosé are duck and salmon, and it is the only one of our wines that goes really well with dessert. It is a beautiful wine for a wedding, brunch, Valentine's Day or any romantic dinner for two. - Winery Notes
Sokol Blosser Evolution White BlendIn the beginning...there weren't a whole lot of choices for a really great white blend. Then, through a stroke of luck and/or general intention, nine grapes-Chardonnay and Pinot Gris among them-came together and really liked each other. Together, they produced a wine that was delightful, sublime and just plain yummy. And we called this wine Evolution. Wine lovers loved it. They paired it with spicy Asian, Indian, Mexican and Caribbean foods. Or with a jambalaya. Word spread. And, soon, Evolution Wine was advancing the entire wine universe once bottle at a time.
