Perfect wine for branzino and light Greek tapas after a day on the coast. My first tango with Malagousia (ancient varietal native to Macedonia). Aromatic--someone in another review likened to torrontes, which i think is spot on. Bright, zesty with refreshing lemony acidity like a sauv blanc but with a much fuller body--likely from the extended time on the lees. My favorite part is that the name of the Single-Vineyard is Turtle Vineyard and there is an emblem of the turtle on the back label. What can I say? I love slow, ancient reptiles and Greek wines. — a month ago
Can't believe I've held on to this treasure for so long! Cedar and sandalwood on the nose. Silky with a bright and savory--almost vegetal--finish. Perfect with filet and steak-house style garlicky creamed spinach. These grapes were picked when I was still in high school! — 4 months ago
Deep dark color. Spice and Alicante deliciousness. Had with a rare New York strip steak. — a month ago
Crisp and bright fruilan white. Smells like apple sauce. Smooth and suave on the palette with bracing acidity, lemon and minerality on the finish. Had with homemade friulan zucchini porcini pasta.

Drinking Sonoma Coast Chardonnay on the Sonoma Coast. Buttery and voluptuous, but elegant at the same time, evoking Mersault. Really good stuff. — 9 months ago
Drinking delightfully well. Lots of bright acid left, wraps up with a long honeyed finish. — 9 months ago
