    November 29, 2014 - Disappointing. Maybe going through a "dumb" phase, since I'd purchased this after tasting it. But I'm not sure. I'm really surprised that I'd have tasted this and paid good money for it. It's not that it's bad, but it comes across like an everyday California Chardonnay. It does not seem to have the stuffing to really age, but I'll put down the other bottle I have since there's nothing really to lose at this point. This is boring, monolithic, and a bit cloying; it does nothing for Tablas Creek's reputation.

    June 5, 2014 - Rhone Rangers DC tasting June 4, 2014. Tasted five Rousssanne blends and three varietal Roussannes at this event. This was at the top. Honey, apricot, and hazelnuts, ripe, full bodied but fitted into a mineral frame, already delicious and approachable, and should be held for further development. I'll have to open at least one bottle now. This wine pairs so perfectly with rich fish and seafood.

    March 26, 2014 - One of the best 100% Roussanne we have ever had. Need to buy more of this wine.

    March 23, 2014 - Light honey in color, smooth viscous mouthfeel. Luscious pear, dried apple, guava with hints of straw and minerals. Very nice.
