    October 15, 2011 - Drinking nicely and really enjoyed this. Same as before, but oddly no sediment in this bottle.

    September 3, 2011 - Consistent with previous note. Lots of sediment for a young white.

    July 23, 2011 - DO NOT MERGE THIS WINE WITH CAMP 4 VINEYARD. This is 71% Grenache Blanc, 20% Rousanne and 9% Viognier, while Camp 4 is 65% Grenache Blanc, 35% Rousanne. Also see pictures of different bottles and UPC codes. I own both. Now the regular note - Consistent with previous note. I like this better than the 09 Curran Grenache Blanc as it is drier and more complex. This is 71% Grenache Blanc, but the 20% Rousanne and the 9% Viognier give more complexity and interest to the wine. As last time, a surprising amount of sediment for a young white. Excellent with Chilean sea bass.

    September 17, 2010 - This is mostly grenache blanc with some rousanne and viognier as well. The wine has the thick texture and creminess you often find with white Rhone varietals, but also a fairly high level of acidity that counters that and makes for a refreshing, food friendly wine. Lemon and melon fruit on a medium body frame with nice balance and a 30 or 35 sec finish. Unusually, there was a fair amount of sediment.
