Very light lemon yellow color. Tight and shy on first sniff….then high bright lemon/ lime and tart Granny Smith aromas. Crisp, mineral, unoaked, light in weight, a hint reductive initially; then opening up with zingy acidity that tiptoes across the palate. The wine opens beautifully as it warms and works well with yellowfin crudo and Chicken breast Romesco. The low ABV and lively acid make for a long, interesting finish. By far my best Aligote ever. — 3 hours ago

Scott outdid himself with this one. — 23 days ago
This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.
Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.
This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.
This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.
Thank you Scott for sharing.

Final btl. Unscrewed on the 17th, notes from the 19th. Just stunning on days 1 and 2 and far and away the best showing I've had for this wine. Very mild signs of oxidation on day 3 open (unrefrigerated on the counter overnight in between). On the nose: black tea, dried strawberry, wet leaf, spice. On the palate: fantastic acidity, wild strawberry, earthy herbals, with a touch of decay/oxidation and the softest hint of tannin on the finish. Absolutely lovely. — a month ago
