July 16, 2018 - Smells like a dessert wine! Peach, pineapple, mango. Hints of herbs. No grass. Honey. Palate is rich and round, with honey and melon, but likely on the way out in the next year or so. Medium finish, with some mineral buzz, and some herbs at the very end.
Nice aged white!
March 15, 2018 - Oh, lordy. If you haven't opened this one yet, just keep it for the label, and be happy with that. I gave it to the roses.
August 15, 2010 - Better on day one. No formal notes. Don't hold this one, drink up!
April 30, 2010 - Flavor profile consistent with previous notes, but with a touch of aged-taste to it as well. Still just darn fun to drink. I let this one sit open in the fridge for a little more than a week, and by the time I got to the bottom of the bottle, it was all peaches and apricots... Like biting into a fresh peach. With a weeeee little bit of shoe polish (age).
April 11, 2009 - Medium golden straw color. Fragrant nose of peach, green apple, apricot, melon, honey, butterscotch, caramel & spiced oak. Very smooth, luscious full body, with juicy acidity and light tannins. Palate comes across similar to the nose, with some solid mineral on the medium-length finish. Nice wine
March 10, 2009 - Love the depth of this wine. Lots of banana peel and canteloupe on the nose as usual. The viscosity of the wine is astounding and the finish lasts for at least 20 seconds. Great QPR wine as well.
January 19, 2009 - Color (5/5) a vibrant golden yellow somewhere between rich and deep. The nose (10/15) is light -- even after some air -- and yields honey apple and a hit of tropical. Palate of petrol mineral apple with some white peach. The finish is long though the wine is surprisingly less powerful than expected (12/20). Nonetheless, it's a well-made wine probably meant to compliment food more than be drunk on its own. Low acidity doesn't suggest it's a long keeper, so drink up (5/10). You won't be disappointed.
December 14, 2008 - The Blind Drunks do Obscure Varietals with Jay McDonald (Matt & Jody's): Opens with a musty apple note. Flavors of apple and melon, with decent underlying acidity.
November 28, 2008 - On the nose I found apple, pear, apricot, honey, and butterscotch. I could really smell the influence of the Viognier on the nose of this wine, even though the Viognier makes up the smallest percentage by far of the grapes in the blend. In the mouth I found apple, pear, pineapple, crab apple, vanilla, and baked apple pie.
October 13, 2008 - Not much body, not much fruit, very light, acceptable as a summer pool wine, clean finish, but just not much to it
