Medium ruby with a nice dark fruit nose. I get blueberry cherry on the palate with a smooth finish. For such a young wine it’s excellent right now but should even be better in a few years. This winery is really a great one — 2 days ago

N: Lemons, ginger, banana peel, very fresh, like a just passed thunderstorms sun. You can smell the oak, but it’s￼ like a ghost in the background.
P:Lemon custard, ever so light, creamy,tart, long finish, slight wood. He was really talented.

If served this “ blind”, very few would peg it as a Cali Chard. A stylistic response to criticism of previous, over the top Chards.
With time and air, some flinty mineral goodness appears along with the sensation of citrus pith. — a day ago
Glowing, radiant fruit mixed with salty/mineral tones and a distinctive phenolic grip adding dimension and structure. Skin contact dialed in. Graceful and nimble given its richness. White peach, orange cream, scrubland, salt, crushed rock, green almond, yellow flowers, beeswax. Played incredibly well with roasted Halibut, chorizo and ratatouille — 22 days ago
2014 vintage. Starting with the 1982 vintage La Tour de By released a high end wine called Héritage from the best selection of the oldest vines. This 2014 is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. It features an attractive nose with cassis, cedar wood and a hint of truffle. Elegant, with soft tannin, a certain complexity and good length. — a month ago
