From the bottle:
the beach house
I’m always a little skeptical of the name of wines and they way they are marketed, but in this case the name fits nicely. Although personally I would have chosen something a little less specific than “beach house” as this is a great wine whether you’re talking about a beach house, a deck, a patio or just some folding chairs in the backyard or even the garage. The 2010 Douglas Green The Beach House exhibits aromas of lemongrass, citrus, and pear on the nose. It tastes light, bright and refreshing with crisp citrus and pear notes. It ends with a nice subtle finish. The Beach House is a relatively simple wine, but is very good and easy to drink. Recommended any time (and all the time) June through August.
