    September 30, 2022 - My score is really just a gift to the wine for reminding me not to give up too quickly on Rhône varietal blends, more than 5 years old, that commonly come out of the bottle : acidic, tight, champagne lemon vinegary almost, like that jar of preserved. lemons in my fridge two years after it’s expiration date. After a half hour decant and rechill, this rounded and opened with lemongrass, white pepper, beeswax, and sticky fragrant flower (from the viognier). Slightly unbalanced and with the drinking window closing, but still a treat. Expecting to be disappointed by this bottle, I planned to use most of it for Maine piss clams. With fresh lemongrass, fennel fronds, ginger, and clam broth , it made a perfect steaming liquid. A bit of minced lemongrass and slightly reduced wine in the butter sauce helped elevate this wine’s score for me. Great pairing. As with Hermitage blanc, patience, faith, and food are preconditions to enjoying this quirky WA Marsanne blend.

    October 25, 2020 - Approximately a 60%-40% split of Marsanne ad Viognier respectively. Aged about 13 months in 35% new oak.
    Deep yellow gold color in the glass.
    Aromas are expressive and show notes of candied orange, dried mango, lemon curd, pear and nectarine with citronella, yellow flowers, and subtle hints of spice, bread dough, river rock and beeswax.
    The wine enters the palate with a viscous and full almost waxy textured mouthfeel. Above moderate acidity keeps the wine from being to heavy. The flavors follow the nose and reveal dried mango, candied orange, pear, lemon curd, citronella, crushed flowers, beeswax, spice and rocky earth. The finish is moderate in length and intensity.

    June 30, 2019 - Loads of Citranella, lemon grass & herbal character. This is my 3rd Reynvaan white wine and i have yet to taste any tropical flavors. Very unique, a herbal lemony zest that likely would best pair with white fish.

    June 28, 2019 - Basically vinegar. This was stored in my temperature controlled cellar since I purchased it directly from the winery upon release. I’m not sure if it got cooked during the delivery process but this bottle was undrinkable vinegar.
