    September 22, 2017 - Rumpelstiltskin gold, right out to the edges. By the color and the way it coats the glass, you'd be forgiven for expecting a CA Chardonnay. Tree fruits and flowers (with notes of caramel and vanilla) on the nose. Mouthfeel is round & viscous and very even through to the finish. Nose translates onto the palate, blending with crushed limestone, vanilla and a touch of citrus, well supported by crisp acidity. Medium intensity and a medium long finish. A slightly different approach to a Roussanne, with a tad more weight and viscosity, revealing new aspects of the grape. Stand alone or with food, this wine works!

    July 22, 2017 - Deep golden with an almost orange tinge. Weighty, had a little viscosity and a slick mouthfeel. Melon and citrus, with slight (white) pepper (?) on the finish and just enough acid to keep it from being flabby.

    July 27, 2015 - Absolutely loved this wine. It had great mouthfeel, nice weight, yet finished clean with great acidity. It paired perfectly with panko and parsley crusted scallops.

    March 6, 2015 - Best bottles (2) yet. At a perfect place for this wine. Really drinking well. Beautiful floral nose, great melon/fruit flavors, smooth mouthfeel, balanced acidity. Nice! I like this wine opened about an hour prior to consumption. Just seem to improve the wine a bit.
