    April 9, 2016 - Good Napa SB. Oaky citrus melon front end. Tropical fruit (banana) really presented itself when paired with Halibut, but not as noticeable on its own.

    September 8, 2015 - The wine is starting to show some age in the bottle with the wine becoming more straw colored.

    Aromas of bright orange oil, passion fruit pulp, and ripe, fresh gooseberry dominate. Flavors of tangy kiwi and gooseberries as well as bright citrus notes combine with a salty minerality and subtle vanilla on the pallet. The wine is medium bodied with and very bright. I think that this can go on easily for a few more years.

    August 24, 2015 - Bright, clean, crisp with floral undertones and a hint of earth. Perfect for a warm Sunday afternoon.
