The 2010 Call to Arms displays much of what makes the Alta Colina vineyard a mesmerizing site. The wine’s powerful yet playful nose of redwood forest, fresh donut, apple cider, wet sand and nutmeg reveals an unctuous yet surprisingly nimble palate with flavors of poached pear, winter berry, orange zest and tarragon. A Grenache Blanc that is not for the faint of heart.
