Tasted over three days. Consistent with previous note. Gooseberry, kumquat, pear, citrus, shale, kelp, and a certain brininess appear prominently on the bouquet and palate. Bracing structure, mouthwatering, palate-cleansing, and ridiculously long. Among the best Chardonnays I have tasted and decidedly the most enjoyable. Stunning and delicious! 95-96.
A tremendous and utterly mind-bending wine. Tasted over three days. Had it for Chardonnay but couldn't settle on a place. This wine features ridiculous concentration, rippin' acids, and stunning texture that both play with and gracefully dance across the palate; the Perfect Wine Storm if you will. Incredibly interesting. Stupid value! 95-96.
Probably the best Chard I have tasted. Crisp, pineapple with a perfect acid balance. Nice stony, mineral aspects that led to profound length. This is an Oregon Chard folks..and it's not an oak bomb. Find it. Buy it. You will not be disappointed
Nice pale golden color. Flinty, slightly grassy nose almost a cross of Sav Blanc and Chard. In the mouth the Chard comes through with nice citrus and a delightful back-of-the-palate richness. Good acidity. More like a Chablis overall.
Guessed blind. This has that Evening Land smoke and iodine on the nose with amazingly vibrant acidity and a lighter feel than previous vintages. Lime, gunpowder, apple and charred pineapple (maybe?). There is a lot hidden on the nose, ready to open with time in bottle. The palate is lacy and delicate, like a non-dosage Champagne but powers through to a really, long citrus finish. There is a lot of pop here and I can really feel this wine's potential. The length and finish are really what define this wine's quality. Nicely done. This should be fun in 8-10 years.
This wine was recommended by a friend and man did it deliver. In a sea of amazing wines this held it's own and was very similar to burg chard. Pithy fruits, funky cheese, sea bed, slatey, a lift of sweet on the nose. On the palate it was bright, weighted but with lively acidity. Great with lingcod, sea foam and greens.
