This delicious recipe for Southwestern Fish Taco Salad pairs perfectly with the Cloud Number Nine Blend.
Our Cloud Number Nine Blend was produced in the Lodi region of California. This white blend is a mix of different vintages, which produce a floral nose of daffodil and orange blossom. Aromas of lemon, lime and grapefruit come forward as well. This medium-bodied wine has a mild attack flavored with orange zest and dry fruit characters such as apricot.
Note that our wines sell out quickly but we release new ones each month. If you find a wine to be unavailable, please click here to contact Brian for a suggestion.
