July 12, 2012 - Thursday night at home - the night before a CTW project. Couldn't quite get it cold enough to enjoy., but had it the next night out for sushi with Linda and John. Enjoyed by all - will probably buy a couple more bottles.
April 14, 2012 - An interesting mix. Good acidity and body with a touch of butter (oak?) providing a bit more complexity than usual.
January 13, 2012 - This wine is up my alley, very pleasant tropical and floral notes; excellent mouth feel, crisp and good balance, with a generous taste, pineapple, ripe apple and floral flavors present; finishes relatively short but overall an outstanding effort.
December 27, 2011 - I found this wine to be nice but a little boring. Everyone else loved it.
October 9, 2011 - A very easy wine to drink. Almost too easy.
The wine looks Light gold colored.
August 8, 2011 - Los Olivos Tasting: 65% Grenache Blanc, 35% Roussanne. Floral nose. Refreshing and crisp, the Grenache Blanc "tames" the Roussanne a bit. Nice tropical fruits, melon.
July 30, 2011 - Tensley tasting room in Los Olivos. Very nice flavors with good balancing acidity. A little touch of heat on the finish.
April 24, 2011 - Lovely yellow-gold. Good legs. Vanillin oak in the nose, with lychee, cream and butter. Loads of creamy, honeyed, multi-nuanced fruit on the palate. Unfolds layer upon layer. Complex for sure but at the same time somehow powerful and rich with a large frame. This wants to grab all of your attention. And it does. Bravo! 5-13-17-8: 93/100
April 15, 2011 - A really fine white Rhone-type wine. Clean and bright. Lovely tropical fruit nose with lychee and a hint of mild banana. Excellent fruit-acid balance makes this very refreshing and lively in the mouth. Exudes the character of the varietals it is comprised of. This one won over one of my friends. 5-12-16-7 90/100
