A little too acid forward and not enough balance.

Dark chocolate nose made this pleasant to drink and while we did not decant the bottle it did evolve over time as it was opened. A little funky on the end but that went away.

This pretty Trebbiano offers aromas of peach, candied fruit and apricot. There’s a freshness to the aromas that translates into crisp and snappy zest in the mouth. A very rich wine.

Still fruit forward on this wine. Cork disintegrated but was able to save it from falling into the wine itself. Lingering finish which made this quite memorable and amazing for an older wine.

Not as crisp as I would like a Pinot Grigio to be and for me it had notes of orange which I also don't prefer in my Pinot Grigio.

A heavily oaked chardonnay that has a long finish and with hints of apricot, honeysuckle, and smoke on the nose. Beautifully balanced and the alcohol content is what I've come to expect from a Napa Valley chardonnay.

Tropical flowers on the nose and taste of lemon and grapefruit. Seemed to be high acidity. Not my style of wine. Probably would be served best with spicy food.

It's been in my cellar since I bought it off of wine.woot. It's still harsh with the tannins and to me not drinkable. Even after letting it sit for an hour it was still just fruit, tannic, and thin. I will be probably making a red wine sauce with the rest of it. The first bottle I turned into a sangria which wasn't that good either.

Glorious butterbomb with a long finish. The alcohol is present at the end but otherwise a very smooth wine.

An excellent cab sauv for the price. I was the first one at the restaurant and I opened this up. Everyone else then tried to outdo the mica and failed. I also bought the remaining mica for a later date. Not much of a tasting note and more of story but you won't be disappointed if you enjoy Napa Cabs.

On the nose I get baked apple, pear and lemon. On the palate there are mineral notes as well as pear. The wine was done in 1/3 new French oak barrels for eight months and it shows ever so slightly. It is not an overly oaked chard. The oak is just a light note in a symphony of tastes and smells.

It wasn't that great when it was cold. But as it warmed up and paired with fried calamari it was a very good wine.

Regular Napa Chardonnay with light oak. Quite tasty at the price point.

I believe it's past its prime or I received a flawed bottle but this was subpar. It got a little better when it warmed up but not much.

Honeysuckle, apple, and a hint of honeydew on the nose. Very crisp and cuts through the buffalo wing sauce cheddar cheese I had. This did seem to get better with a year or two aging. I did not enjoy this when I opened the first bottle. Still not great though.

White chocolate essence. Raspberries and cherries are the overpowering tastes and aroma besides the chocolate. I made the mistake of having food with it, and that should not be the case when drinking this.

Honeysuckle and pineapple on the nose. Honey and guava on the palate. Very silky and slight acid on the finish. Probably at its peak now.
