Expressive nose at this point with tart red fruits and definite oak/spice to complement. PNP this has very nice fruit and acid balance. Quite enjoyable. Will save 1/2 for day 2 to see if this is worth saving longer for the next bottle....

Day 2 has the same nose, a little less acidity and a little more tannin on the finish....not sure what to make of that other than I liked day 1 more than day 2. I say drink now.

now I know what a balanced wine is...Thanks Raj. Decanted for 1 hour. Beautiful nose and decent fruit. A bit more acidity than I like in a red, but really well made. Good value. Not as good the 2nd night

Served slightly chilled and decanted a bit more than 30 minutes. Dark color for a pinot. Nose: Dark cherries, some dust. Almost effervescent on the tongue, cherry, cola, spice. Medium-high acid. An interesting CA pinot; different, give it a try. Perhaps a bit monotonous. Could benefit from more time in the bottle?

Discreet at first but opens up nicely after an hour+. Nose of blackberry, blueberry & violets / flowers w some earthiness. Nice acidity and what it lacks in focus, it makes up for in a round & pleasant mouthfeel. Medium finish and although it doesn't blow me away, very pleasant and should hold onto last bottle for a year or more to see how it evolves.

Red fruit, cherries and raspberry, whole clusters. Austere and spicy. Rhubarb, cinnamon and dry chocolate. Cool red fruit on the palate, perfectly balanced with stem, cinnamon spice and acidity. This wine has personality, not just about the cool, delicate fruit. Would benefit from a year or two in the cellar but drinks beautiful already. Really like the style.

IPOB, NY At under $25 this performs nicely, the touch of oak offsetting its otherwise AC Chablis character. Nice, refreshing, pure, with energy and tangy lemon and white flower aroma and flavors.

This has improved significantly since I last tried it. The nose is filled with floral and mineral notes along with some hints of gaminess and red berry fruits. I think blind I would have guessed Volnay. The palate has put on weight and is more flavorful, but still fresh and energetic with some tannins, but mainly driven by acidity. Finishes just a touch short, but overall this is quite good and with food (pork schnitzel with sage brown butter sauce) it was very good.

- Light gold color with fast forming legs and aromas of peach, apple and honey. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of peach, apple and honey with a light body. Bright texture with a long finish - Pear and honeysuckle flower on the nose.

4/6/2015 - William Kelley Likes this wine: NR

The 2011 Sandhi Rita's Crown is a stunning wine, bursting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, apple, wet rocks, spring flowers and a framing of vanilla oak. On the palate the wine is intensely concentrated with a lovely core of deep minerality and beautiful cut and focus. I served this blind to friends who were convinced it was Jean-Marc Roulot's Meursault Perrierères, which seemed totally plausible to me. Top flight.

California Chardonnays, Blind (Chez John Morris): Lovely nose with mint, flowers, vanilla, ripe pears, and oak spice. Good concentration, and this shows a level of complexity and integration that is beyond the others, with the the fruit, acid, oak, and chalky mineral character all working together. Very good length, excellent wine. I ranked this 1/8.

Blind California Chardonnays - New School v. Old School: Group's 3rd, my 2nd. My notes say "Wow!". This is just salinity/umami from nose to tail; it smells salty and spicy on the nose, it tastes SUPER salty and has great, mouthwatering acid, and finishes long and even a touch chalky. This is not about the fruit, probably the least fruity of the 8, but it has so much of everything else. I'd kill to drink this with food. A singular California chardonnay. Hard to believe this quality in a non-SVD.
