This 2016 is starting to drink really well - still a bit of oak forward on the palate but the blackberry, cassis, black cherry and cedar are well-integrated, the tannins are silky and ripe and there is a beautiful harmony to the long finish. Mostly Cabernet (80%) with 17% Merlot and 3% Petite Verdot — 9 hours ago
Wow, what a killer Chardonnay this is, Newton Johnson’s Family Vineyards 2019. From the get-go, the wine bursts forth with aromas of burnt butter, toffee, bruised pear, apple tart and chamomile. This has great variety on the nose and displays characteristics of fruit, herbaceousness, oak and sharp citrus. It’s quite arresting and makes for a wine you sniff for some time before taking a sip.
So, the sip? Intense and concentrated on the palate, showing great depth and terrific cut from fresh squeezed lime. The wine expands in the mouth and finishes long.
This really is exemplary Chardonnay and I’m glad I have a few more bottles in the trunk. — 8 months ago
My first Charbono and absolutely love it! Generous red fruit, complimented by leather and earth. Silky tannins, super juicy, aromatic, and long. — 21 days ago
Great old-school Martha’s Vineyard nose but not fully delivering that to the palate. Good wine though. — 5 months ago
Really nice, deep ruby fruited with a long smooth finish. Very enjoyable. Another bottle in May 6, 2022 was equally enjoyable. Going to have to get some more of this stuff! — 7 months ago
