Donkey & Goat

Cannonball Red Blend 2021

2021. From the D&G website “The base is Testa Carignane (62%) and Rava Grüner Veltliner (21%) and the spice is a mix of Fenaughty Grenache Blanc (6%) & Vermentino (6%) and Cloud Chardonnay (5%).”
Their tasting notes are spot on, especially the fruit rollup 😄
“Delightful tart notes of Bing cherry, cranberry and red raspberry spill forward on the palette along with the zing of chewy fruit-rollups. Deeper in, a flinty, volcanic minerality balances and grounds this high-energy wine, while a creamy mouthfeel completes the enchantment.”

Gérard Boulay

Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Some serious power and amplitude here. Vibrantly fruited, supported by the deep chalky tones of this terroir. Oro blanco, candied pear, quince, some exotic tones like pineapple and mango. There’s an underlying grip and phenolic bite, thick skins, adding extra dimension. The cool herbs break late and more with aeration, aloe and chervil. Classic Boulay in its pleasure factor. — 24 days ago

Bench Break Chardonnay 2014

For about $15, I did not expect it would hold up this well at year 8.
Still very clean and refreshing on the nose with green apple, pear, pineapple, tangerine, hint of honeysuckle. Supple palate. Bright acidity has nice round edges. Lingering mineral and thyme infused finish.
What a value!

This hand paid nicely, I wouldn't have expected it to be alive at this time either.

I was very pleasantly surprised @Severn Goodwin . still have 1 bottle left. Based on this bottle, seems it might have another 2-3 years. Hope it turns out to be good as well.
