    October 23, 2016 - My third glass thru Coravin. This wine sings with pure chenin notes of honey suckle, beeswax, lanolin, and blanched nuts and a touch of Meyer lemon. Long and smooth finish. Well made and easily enjoyable throughout a meal.

    October 3, 2016 - served with many friends to accompany lobster and shellfish. Funky chenin nose and not quite the acidity I would have hoped for, but still contrasted pretty well with ripe sweet fruit. Color not orange but very full gold. Folks were in raptures but I thought it pretty good...not sure if this gets better with time, but not sure you need to wait if you have a few bottles

    June 12, 2016 - Paired with Thai food, very nice texture, good balance, went great with the semi-spicy dishes we had

    March 19, 2016 - Dinner with Two Jadot 1993 Grand Cru Reds (Liholiho Yacht Club, San Francisco): Full yellow. Over time, baked apple, honey, and pear, but it took a while to release these scents. Off dry, some bitterness to start but gradually found its footing and texture. Good but not as glorious as it can be.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec) This is pleasing, not so expressive, rather it is gentle, subdued, perhaps a touch closed on the nose. It has a lovely presence on the palate though, textured and delineated, with a good weight, structure and substance. The character and interest will come with time in bottle. Lots of potential here I think.
