    September 25, 2018 - Nose of butterscotch and a sweeter gingerbread. Clove and almond as well. Toasted chestnuts mixed with Christmas cookie and butterscotch frosting. Baking spices as well. Delicious effort!! 93-94 points.

    February 18, 2018 - The wine is kind of tart. But it does have tropical fruits including pineapple. Just not to our liking.

    September 3, 2017 - nose was a bit austere, otherwise I would have scored this much higher. delicious tropical fruits on the palate with some zesty acidity on the finish. would be interesting to see where this goes in 5 years

    August 11, 2017 - Vindredi (White Burgundy and California Chardonnay) (Bellevue, WA): Tasted blind. Pineapple, honey, honeycomb, and biscuit on the nose. Rich and apple-y on the body; showing some signs of oak.

    November 24, 2016 - More Burgundy than CA... but still somewhere in the middle. Balance between fruit and mineral... minimal oak. Definitely more of a connosier style.
