Wine experts say this White wine shows the best qualities of its vintage. It`s bone dry, brisk in acidity, intensely minerally and intensely honeyed. The hints of pineapple and lime are subtle, but make for a racy, penetrating finish. A complex, intense wine, packed with botrytis and ripe hedgerow fruits. The wine reveals many layers of flavor as it opens. It is now mature and ready to drink. Elegant, spicy and nicely concentrated, this dry, fruity wine has a rich, concentrated character that shines through the crispness of the red berry fruits. The acidity is a fine counterpoint. Freshness is the foundation of this well-made, food-friendly and aromatic wine. It has Subtle smoke and white flowers on the nose, and concentrated citrus on the bright palate. This is a fine, immediately attractive wine that shows structure as well as delicious red berry and juicy red plum fruits.
Wine experts say this White wine is barrel fermented. Not that that this Chardonnay is anything to swoon over, but that it`s difficult to fathom the village appellation in the region (i.e. Champoux) using grapes from behind the mountain. This is a rich, oaky wine, with classic Napa construction. The palate is pure and fairly powerful, with sweet pineapple jam, white pepper, and hints of toasted oak. It has a smooth, almost fat texture. It`s a simple, memorable wine for those who like their wines in a burly way. A bit tough and gritty, but beautifully defined, with cranberry, raspberry and black licorice fruit. The wine shows excellent tannic structure, layered and concentrated with the most lively, lively acidity. Powerful and muscular, almost thick in the mouth, this is a wine for serious Monterey Pinot Noir lovers.
Wine experts say this White wine is utterly gorgeous. So easy to like because of its roundness and pure, long hangtime flavors. It exhibits ripe peach, pineapple, green apple and pear flavors, enhanced with oak, dried ginger and butterscotch, despite being two years old. So clean and pure now, the wine should have no trouble aging; try after 2016. Made with Vermentino, Malvasia di Candia Aromatica and Petit Manseng, this easy-drinking wine has aromas of fragrant white flowers, citrus zest, vanilla, apricot and freshly peeled tangerine skin. The fruit flavors are mild in style but show a sense of maturity and balance. Drink now. This is a smooth, ripe and fruity wine. It has a Mediterranean character, lemon and lively acidity. With its tangy, fragrant acidity and tight aftertaste, it will be ready to drink soon, so just wait until early 2017.
Wine experts say this White wine shows superior pedigree. It`s bone dry, brisk in acidity and has brisk lemon, lime and green herbal flavors, all brightened by bracing acidity. The length and detail extraordinary. This wine will continue to evolve over the next decade. Powerful and concentrated, this shows both the finesse of the Anderson Valley and the `09 vintage that was supposed to be a great wine, and the elegance of immature vines. The blackberry, currant and mocha flavors are drinking well now, and should hold well for several years. Sourced from the Stroudberry Vineyard in Alexander Valley and from all over the valley, this is a stellar example of purity and detail. The bouquet is pure and pure Vernaccia floral; the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are finely ground, smooth, harmonious and just a lot of fun.
