September 16, 2016 - No formal TN.
Delicious in it's own right, but I cannot see spending $70+ on this wine, with all the other delicious whites out there...

August 27, 2016 - Still learning on those varietal front.
Buttery rich nose to me but lemon curd and apple and rich texture.
August 24, 2016 - This is rich and lush vs lemon/mineral. Was quite surprised, in a good way, from the typical Rhys style.

August 6, 2016 - egh's 7/17/16 note hits the nail on the head, I would add a touch of sweetness to his description of the fruit but again just enough acid to keep from veering into "too rich" territory... really good now but drink up asap, this would be enjoyed by Rombauer fans if you have any but is a totally different type of wine (and much better)

July 16, 2016 - 13.2% alcohol. This emphasizes ripeness, richness, and concentration with aromas and flavors of pineapple, lemon curd, golden apple, creamy oak, and roasted nuts. There is plenty of density and power here, but with enough acidity to counterbalance. This wine really benefited from a good chill/cool serving temperature, as it helped to keep the wine from veering into fat or flabby territory. Probably best consumed over the next 1-2 years.1 person found this helpful Comment
