Thought I check in on this bad boy, and all is well. Aubert could be the patron saint of Cali chards - he (inc. Kistler and Mount Eden) set the standard against which most of the multitude are judged. For me, this represents the dew of brilliance in a glass. When you taste it, it explains itself. The nose displays a hint of caramel, honeycomb and biscotti. The mid-palate is ethereal - at this point, you know you have fallen into good hands. Acidity is relaxed, and the oak treatment frames this up well. Finishes sweet with an uncommon density.
I’m modifying an author’s prose when I say, “Tasting wine is like viewing art. Most of it isn’t great, and the good stuff is out of our price range.” Aubert occupies the latter category. — 12 hours ago

With Pinot friends so I brought this wine to share. I think it would have been better earlier but still great! — 7 days ago
