    April 9, 2022 - Popped and poured. Beautiful shape. Deep, full bodied, layered and complex. This is in early maturity now showing orchard fruit, minerals and a little brioche finishing nice and long. Drink over the next three to five years.

    January 21, 2022 - This wine was spectacular. It had a subtle nose that reduced my expectations but it was so delightful and unique on the palate. Oak, pear and orange accented with a whiff of fig and smoke. I just loved this stuff. Only rating it a bit lower because the nose was so subdued.

    October 22, 2021 - Popped and poured. Fabulous. Light golden. White flower, lemon, pear and minerals come through. The wine is focused with crisp acidity but at the same time expansive with amazing concentration, depth and sporting a long long finish. Drank alongside a pretty good 2009 chevalier montrachet and this was clearly the superior wine

    September 21, 2021 - Popped and poured. Terrific nose. The wine is full bodied,incredibly pure, and layered. Still youthful with a lovely floral nose and flavors of lemon rind, apple, minerals and toast coming through. This is very good but a little heavier in style compared to some other vintages of this I’ve drink at roughly the same state of maturity.

    May 24, 2021 - Hmm that big punch from a Cali Cali Chard is quickly replaced by a refined, almost austere, definitely restrained wine. Absolutely unique. The perfect cross between Cali chard and Burgundy. All the while delivering huge pleasure. Long, complex. Very youthful still. Most Cali chards would be showing their age but not this one! Drink now and will last 10 years at least.
