    February 24, 2021 - Still less moving than previous vintages but offers up fresh notes of stone fruit, lime, moderate body, touch of sweetness. 93

    December 11, 2020 - Sauvignon Blanc from Howell Mountain. Pretty explosive notes of gooseberries, ripe lemon, some freshly cut grass, also some leafy notes of mint, also a touch of seashell minerality. It's medium+ bodied, with good persistence, has medium+ acidity and pretty good length. A nice, SB that shows quite some varietal character, there is a touch of alcohol that is recognizable and it could use a touch more freshness from my perspective. Still very good.

    October 24, 2020 - Smooth, pineapple, lemon, finishes smoothly and with notes of guava, want just a touch more acid on the finish. Although some library selections are occasionally offered, I really think this drinks much better young. 92-93
