Pop and pour yesterday. I don't always drink grenache, but when I do...Yum. This is fantastically pure and solid grenache. Raspberry incense, wild strawberry coulis. Lovely acidity, good density, and a bright, tangy finish, with attenuated tannin. At peak, and excellent. — a month ago

Cool climate Grenache! Delicate, floral, very elegant. Snap it up. Probably can age 5-10 yrs, but oh so enjoyable right now. 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah from same Demeter certified vineyard. — 7 months ago

An experience wine to know, love and appreciate the history and genius of Bob Lindquist in birthing Santa Barbara/Central Coast as one of the great wine regions of the world. Here is proof. At 22 years young, a revelation in ageable Rousanne From Alban vineyard. Reduced with some matchstick, the fruit is mostly cider apples, but the long oak toast and yeasty, buttery golden color and honeyed deliciousness make this a wine to remember. Most will dismiss it as lightly oxidized, nutty or flat. But, there is charm and intrigue and the right pairing will entrance those who love wines from Jurancon and appreciate aged whites.
Glad I have more to share in the years to come. — a year ago
2015 vintage - a little age has done wonders for this wine — 2 months ago
We found the 50/50 Viogner/Chardonnay much tastier than the 100% Viogner.
Floral, as expected, but also lots of stone fruit. — a year ago
