Wine & Spirits:

María Luz Marín and her son Felipe specialize in sauvignon blanc at their family estate in the remote coastal village of Lo Abarca. Cipreses is a steep hillside of granite and limestone facing directly west, exposed to the winds off the Pacific less than three miles away. The wine is infused with oceanic flavors, the saltiness of the air and the spiky green-herb scents of the surrounding coastal scrub. But mostly, there’s fruit: bold tropical lime and cherimoya layered in ripeness and textural complexity. Pour it with roasted razor clams, or bring a bottle to the beach, for lobsters roasted with corn and potatoes in a sand pit this summer.
