Schöne Reduktion und Schmelz, wirkt wenig wie lauter ab. Gute mineralität. Sehr nett. Wirkt wir Burgund — 8 days ago
Small winery, managed by Doug Shafer. Blend of 90% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot & 3% Malbec, aged, 20 months, 100% new French oak. Beautiful fruit & floral aromas, hints of savory spice. On the palate cherry & raspberry flavors with oak structure adding pepper, licorice & cacao. Firm tannins, approachable now, long ending with fruit & mineral edge. Had this about 2+ years ago, nice now but more cellaring will only benefit this beauty, if you can resist the temptation. Very Nice! — 19 days ago
Damn, love this chard. Not what we expected from Sonoma - it’s light, fragrant, and elegant. Saw a review that said ‘lemon confit’ and that nailed it better than my lemon dessert takeaway. I could crush a lot of this.

Medium weight, dry and acid forward, long, lingering finish. No noticeable oak, low ABV, built for washing down anything Mediterranean...anything that swims...anything scratching that garlic, olive oil, and citrus itch. Hay, tart citrus, olive, saline...godello is that true unicorn...white wine that can both swim all by itself and still play well with others. — a month ago
There are big dark plums and dried figs with sensuous structure that covers your tongue in layers of depth and comfort.
It’s a big warm hug from someone you love. Not too hard or awkward, one you can be in for a long time. — 7 days ago
Spice on the nose with blackberries. Lots leg. Slightly tart, with burst of cherry and spice. Would definitely get this again.

This is still thriving: elegantly styled Left Bank offering with bright beam of pure cherry & currant, cassis, along w/endearing secondary layers of earth, leather, herbaceousness, hint of pepper, tomato leaf and others... great complexity w/out being all over the place. Mid weight, mild tannins and great freshness. Impressive! — a month ago
