Magnificent. Pristine bottle, richness and depth yet weightlessly elegant. Did not taste a day over 4-5 years old, possibly younger, absolutely incredible. Yellow tree fruits, gooseberry, lees, wet stones, river water, fines herbs, blossoms, struck rocks, cool verbena, earth. Top form and demonstrated its class with absolute truth. — a month ago
This is a nice white blend from Lodi. Showing citrus, lemons, apples, earth, vegetables, spices, river rocks and white pepper.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing and drinking very nicely now.
Dry on the palate and feels like a touch of old world white.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

Tastes like strolling along a river bank on a sunny fall day with a slight chill in the air.
Unripe green apple, white grapefruit, white peach, white nectarine, lemon and tangerine oil, lime blossom... and SO MUCH minerality. This is textbook wet stone, cool slate, and sea-breeze salinity. Lean and precise, with laser-cut acidity; not austere, but it might be if it didn’t have such an unexpectedly lush mouthfeel.
If I didn’t know this was Chenin, I might blind it as an Aligoté or a Romorantin. I’d love to try this again in 3 years or so! — 2 months ago
Well made wine, great balance and fruit. Reminisce of a Russian river grape, but from Santa Cruz — 4 months ago
Very drinkable, pleasant sweet flavor — 2 months ago
Light to med/light limpid purple... actually looks more like Pinot or Gamay in the glass. Light aromas of raspberry, tart cherry, slight metallic, and forest- floor. I like the weight, the lifted savory dryness, the lightness of the wine as it glides over the palate. Not a hint of sweet, of Jam, or over-ripeness. It caresses food, but might otherwise commit the unpardonable sin of falling into “good” rather than something more grandiose... but tonight, with good pizza and watching Biden’s speech... “good” is more than acceptable. — 3 months ago
Well balanced fruity nose, slightly acidic, medium finish. Mild oak flavor. Nice but not a great Viognier. I like Cline better — 5 months ago
2019 Jahrgang, Banane in der Nase, Cremigkeit, leicht nach Hefe
Am Gaumen Banane, Birne, aber auch eine gewisse Säure, evtl. wie Limette, dazu Vanille und Cremigkeit, etwas süßes
Die Säure scheint etwas stärker als 2018er und ein wenig aggressiv
Med Säure (etwas bitter, aggressiv)
Dennoch gut, und fügt sich zu einem recht harmonischen Ganzem
