Beautifully aromatic with a clean mineral overtone - ripe white peach, lemon, honeydew melon, honeysuckle, tarragon, white pepper, arugula. Palate has loads more honeysuckle and white melon and some chewy, citrus-squeezed greenness that blessedly avoids that cloying bitter herbal note I fear from Rhône whites.
Fresh from the fall mailing. I want this next time for brunch with eggs Florentine. Wouldn’t be surprised if it ages brilliantly.

I’m tasting this alongside old vines Gevrey Chambertin and a Côtes de Nuits Villages from a great winemaker and this rocks. Juicier and sooo balanced! Violets and cherries abound. Could be our #SB expensive house wine for when people in Spain ask what SB wines are like? Good ass #pinot #pinotnoir #sbcounty #santabarbarapinot #santabarbaracounty — a month ago
One of those under the radar under 20$ wines that provides the ultimate satisfaction in wine. Like a feel good movie that you won’t tell your friends you watched. Not because it’s embarrassing but because you want to enjoy it all by yourself. And that’s fine with me. — 5 months ago
