    October 12, 2010 - TOP of 2010; 1/1/2010-11/16/2010: Always delicious. A little fatter than I remember it. Similar notes- excellent price point!

    August 23, 2010 - PnP. Clear straw color, typical nose. Light/medium body, clean, fresh tasting, good everyday wine. Good value.

    August 13, 2010 - TOP of 2010; 1/1/2010-11/16/2010: Truly killer, sleekly acidic version of chenin for the value. masquerades as double it's value. A nice herbal thing, kind of like a blend of the leaves and skin of a pineapple combine with a light creamy, slightly musky, under ripe pear and honeyed apple. Definitely a food wine you could pair with anything from fish and chips, to vinaigrette salads, and seared tuna cuts. So pumped about this everyday drinker that treads lightly on the wallet.

    June 19, 2010 - Nose: Apple and green pepper. Taste: Summer-y. Apple and a little green pepper, celery, vegetable, and minerals. Goes with salad or asparagus.

    June 19, 2010 - nice white flower nose, refreshing, smooth, light, nice balance between sweet and dry, underlying mineral, honey, and kiwi flavors, not a complex wine, but an effective thirst quencher with delicious mineral and slate quality, match with shellfish
