    November 19, 2018 - Light, crisp food-friendly wine. Apple, citrus, trace mineral

    November 14, 2018 - Similar to my last note. This just doesn't have quite enough acidity to support the density of the fruit. So it doesn't really come alive or help work with the food enough that you wouldn't care. A decent white and not much more.

    October 13, 2018 - Excellent with fish soup.

    August 23, 2018 - The two notes below are apt for us, especially the analogy to White Rhône. Somewhat round and fruity, showing the muscat. But it did not stand up especially well to grilled salmon with a pungent lemon sauce. Still, enjoyable enough over three nights.

    August 12, 2018 - Sort of a blend of a light Rhone white and Vermentino. Strong grapefruit pith note. Solid glycerin feel right in the midpalate that is almost cleaned up at the finish but not quite. Just on the edge of that place where it might drink flabby. It's light enough that does not become a bother. A nice, fresh dinner white but not a whole lot more.
