    October 9, 2011 - Tasted non blind at home with parrano cheese. Nose of pears, honeysuckle and butterscotch. On the palate, it has spicy caramel and more pears. Medium long finish of sour caramel and pears. Nice, mouth-watering acidity. Overall, a nice wine that is produced in a restrained style with judicious use of oak treatment and no evidence of malo. Initially tasted at around 40-42 degrees but it opened up more at 55-60. 50/50 viognier/chardonnay blend. Good QPR.

    February 14, 2011 - Great with spicy foods such as cioppino, or spicy BBQ. Nice flavors, good aromatics. Nice level of acidity. Tastes of pear, flowers. Bursts on the Palate. A very, very enjoyable wine.

    January 9, 2011 - A glass of France in a bottle. Rich, great balance of oak, acidity, minerality, and fruit. We enjoyed this one. Wish we had more!
