Tasting Notes
The nose has the haunting perfume of magnolia flowers and scent of white peaches, with suggestions of ripe Bosc Pear, sweet green grass, exotic saffron and a touch of lavender honey. But wait, there’s more: A bit of bergamot orange blossom, jasmine, and key lime custard, quince and Madagascar vanilla. These aromas are echoed on the palate adding a light, deft, fresh acidity; a savory wine, perfect with all manner of seafood and lighter entrées.
 
Food Pairing Notes
Oysters, cassoulet, grilled veggies. Staff favorites include blackened fish tacos - or if you're feeling fancy, lobster tacos!
 
Ratings
90 POINTS, WINE REVIEW ONLINE: “For something different, it's always wise to turn to Bonny Doon and see what tricks winemaker Randall Grahm has up his sleeve. Gravitas is pretty much a white Bordeaux-style blend, except for the small splash of Orange Muscat (2.5 percent) that lends a floral note. The majority of the composition is Semillon and Sauvignon blanc. The wine is crafted in a soft, round, approachable style that emphasizes the fig and melon character of the Semillon. The Sauvignon delivers aromas of grapefruit and citrus as well as a bit of minerality and acid backbone. Delicious and delightful; a superb summer sipper." - Robert Whitley | Dan Berger's Wine of the Week, “One of the finest ‘concept' wines I have ever tasted, it’s intended to be White Bordeaux in disguise—circa 1980! ... If you understand and love old-style white Graves, you will like this wine. The only thing Randall Grahm didn’t say on his superb back label is that this wine probably will be best with 5 to 10 more years in the cellar!"
