Community Tasting Notes 5

    March 26, 2012 - color: light gold-yellow; nose: tart apple x grape; taste: crisp light mouth feel, lychee x apple taste and short-to-medium flinty finish; overall: clean, simple everyday drink-with-food white wine which offers quiet pleasure in place of gusto, provides a decent frig-filling QPR ($11) that is good enough to serve to friends along with hors d'oeuvres

    November 12, 2011 - This bottle seemed atypical -- not nearly crisp enough. Pleasant and unobjectionable.

    July 8, 2011 - Nose of minerals, tropical fruits and lychee. Peaches and citrus on the palate. Lots of acidity - long finish.

    April 10, 2011 - I had this after dinner on 4/10/11. It had a very rich, pleasant bouquet of apple, pear, spice, lemon cream and mineral aromas. The palate was rich, creamy and round with flavors that followed the nose. 89+

    March 15, 2011 - I've found that the knock against Pinot Blanc-- that it's bland-- is sometimes true, but also unfair. This is a grape that when paired with complimentary dishes can become really delicious. This bottle is a good example. Starts out with great acidity and minerality and gets better with food.
