Impressive achievement, especially considering the 2011 “off” vintage year. Elegant, fragrant, complex, with a long finish. Lovely. — 8 months ago

Bright, pale straw. Initially shy, but inviting nose of underripe quince. Echoed on the medium palate with an intense mineral streak and hints of burnt citrus rind on opening. As the wine develops in the glass, the mineral note subside and rustic fruits come to the fore. Medium plus acidity supports it all the way through to the moderate finish. This is a wine that can support the entire meal: mineral notes parallel light starters, fleshy pomes buttress the main course, and more opulent stone fruits finish with soft cheese or pastry. Rustic fare pairs particularly well. Drink now through 2028. — 3 months ago
Without parallel. This is what Chardonnay is supposed to taste like. — 8 months ago
Without question the best cabernet franc I’ve ever had from California, this is unfortunately the last bottle I have. I don’t know what happened in 2007, but Gerhard made a spectacular cab franc that has no parallel before or since (of course, the winery no longer exists - at least not in any recognizable form - but you get my meaning). Still drinking incredibly well, this was a singular achievement from what always was a WAY underrated winery. — 3 years ago
Cheers to parallel parking..... and a great bottle of purple angel.
