Quick decant and we drank this over a few hours. Really nice wine with tons of potential. Drinking good now but will improve with a few years.

Pop and pour. Needs a decant. Tannic but good balance and fruit. Amazed this is from PA. A food wine.

This didn't stand out to me. It was an OK Rosé. A bit too dry with not enough flavor. Not off-putting and did go well with our food.

Just great. Immaculate balance, no rough edges. Just as good if not better than the '10 that I really enjoyed. Perhaps less oak than that one. Aside from the Ramey SVD and Liquid Farm, there aren't any auto-buy domestic chardonnays for me.

2012 Trap Door Wines Sauvignon Blanc Mello Vineyards Yountville

The tropical dominated nose is highlighted by star fruit, orange zest, jasmine and lingering minerality. A white peach and stone fruit attack leads to a juicy balanced mouth of guava and lemon-lime. The integrated minerality gives way to a long, crisp finish of orange peel and Key Lime

one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I have ever tasted in California

Pyramid Valley Tasting with winemaker Mike Weersing (Arlequin Wine Merchant, San Francisco, California): Light lemon yellow color with clear meniscus; very herbal, witch hazel, green herb nose; oily textured, herbal, lemon thyme, rosemary, lemon oil, mineral palate; medium finish (picked in 4 passes over one and a half months)
  • tederf commented:

    7/30/10, 5:22 PM - I normally agree with Richard - but in this case NOT. There was way too much green bell pepper for my taste. Overpowered the other flavors. I don't mind herbal - but, to me, this was just too much.

excellent first release.
