Cotton candy come to mind when the wine hits the roof of the mouth. With notes of candy apple and pink grapefruit. It’s a complex wine that will satisfy the most discriminating Chardonnay drinker. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Very solid and well balanced. Goes great with a fire, a mountain cabin, and field of dreams.

Olivier Cousin’s wines are a treasure. To me, his Cab Franc from Anjou is a total revelation. Spicy. Perfect with food. Playful. But able to be pondered on its own. Just amazing.

I’m always most impressed by their entry level Stags Leap District cab. Even more so than the single vineyard wines. Really well balanced and tasty.

Perfect. All I want to drink. Just the right age. Baking spices and flowing sheets of tannins as far as the eye can see.

Favorite wine/vintage combo. Just out of control depth, flavor, deep blue free, and velvety smooth tannins.

Really delicious bottle. Absurdly impressed with how this held up over the years. Peaking right now, but probably could go for another 5 years.
