L'Avion Santa Ynez Valley Roussanne 2020

This wine has a rich, golden color. The nose offers a bounty of nice things. Lemons, apricots, almonds and vanilla, all wrapped up in buttery goodness. The palate is earthy, nutty and fruity all at once. The acidity is fresh and the finish long, with a good streak of salinity staying after the sip. — 20 days ago

The White Coat California Grenache Blanc Blend 2021

The nose when cold had a somewhat sweet nose, with hints of honeysuckle and white grape juice that became more floral as it warmed up. The palate was waxy and medium bodied, with a nice dryness, and a pronounced mineraly that actually dried the mouth, with notes of honeycomb, underripe green fruit of some kind, and fresh cut grassy or hay notes. — 10 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage White Rhone Blend 2020

Tightly wound nose, lots of beeswax, white florals and some stone fruit, rounded by oak. Palate in unfortunately alcohol-first (I guessed 14.5 but it’s 15!) but layers of texture. Good bit hot, more pedigree than magic — 3 days ago

"Les Oliviers" Saint-Joseph Marsanne-Roussanne Blend 2016

Stunning. Marzipan, smoke, cheese rind, lemon, almond. Very clean and chiseled but with ample roundness on the finish. Should continue to evolve for some time — 4 days ago

Le Chevalier de Sterimberg Blanc Hermitage Marsanne Roussanne 2018

A full body, heavy blanc Hermitage, 66% Marsanne and 34% Roussanne. Yellow hay color, brilliant. Noticed nose of pear, strudel apple, even guave.
Thick palate, meaty in structure (for wine), very balanced. Missing the final kick of the minerality. Great experience.

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2015

Wow. This has aged beautifully.

Nose : apricot skin.

Palate : apricots. A hint of unctuous ness. Really delicious. Nectar. Kiss of honey.
