I was sort of expecting a boozy, thick, sweet white from Turley, but this was actually quite nice. Yes, it was very rich and somewhat heavy, but did not show much heat and had some very enjoyable flavors.
(B-Day Dinner with M and H) Delicious. Feared this might be over the hill, but time in the cellar has served this offering (our only bottle of this vintage) well. Golden yellow with thick, striking legs. Nutty marzipan that traverses from bouquet to palate to finish, augmented by orange blossoms, lemon cream and crushed stone. Full bodied with a 30-second finish that begs for another sip. Larry, Tegan and company should make more white wines.
This was not in good shape. Muted nose, heavier in the glass and palate, no expression. I have not enjoyed the White Coats of late and think this will be my last. Too disjointed. Like the idea of roussane/marsanne but this one isn't working for me.
There was a hint of some tropical fruits in this wine, but they were hidden under the plank of wood that someone inserted in this bottle. You could have built a bridge with the amount of oak in this wine. Given the maker, I find this seriously disappointing.
VERY enjoyable White set of grapes. smooth. it was like a coating going over the middle of your tong actually enhanced to flavor of the slightly spicy seafood. it was paired well with scallops and schrimp that had a kick. (not much as i'm a whip) but was good after food was gone. Lovely
A damn fine wine. Luscious nose of melon, peaches, green apple and nutmeg. Mouthfilling flavors of yeasty green apple and white peach, counterbalanced by a racy streak of acidity. Perfect for outdoor movie night at the park.
13.9% ABV. Light gold in the glass. Somewhat nutty sweet marzipan nose with a light herb note. Medium full bodied and a bit undistinguished on the palate. What oak treatment does this get? Not really pushing my buttons.
I am not much of a white wine drinker but I found this to be special. It's young but already special. Smooth, buttery, oak with some tartness to it. It was nice with and without food. I really enjoyed this. Once to be proud to have in your cellar.
