shared with pat at selkirk manor to celebrate the end of the work week. amazing how time goes by. more than a year since we last enjoyed this wine. serial tasting notes indicate the lack of precision in the 100 point scale for rating wine. 88:nothing special, 89:like a lot, 90:like very much, 91+: something special. my tasting notes 12/24/2010, 9/23/2011 and today; all rated 90. yet, there are subtle differences. today's bottle was half way between 12/2010 when the wine was firing on all cylinders and 9/23/2011 when the wine was still enjoyable but fading slightly. today, nice balance between acidity and fruit. still taste grapefruit, lemon, citrus. very fresh, with good attack on the palate but lacking a bit of energy and stamina. still, our favorite california sauvignon blanc, perhaps because it is so robust and, therefore, not typical of what i expect from that grape.
