Popped and poured; no formal notes. The oak is beginning to integrate now and the potential the wine showed upon release is beginning to slowly show itself. This is very much on the Montrachet end of the spectrum, rich and decadent tropical fruits…and seemed to get better with time time in the glass. I have one bottle left and plan to hold until at least 2028…possibly longer. — 8 days ago
McKahn Family Cellars has a real gem with this Viognier, 2021. With a very nice low profile, grapefruit and lemon bouquet, this beautiful white wine tantalizes the tongue￼ with Licorice￼ and grapefruit. There is also a hint of green Apple in there￼. There is an oaky finish with a lingering tartness that drives you to take another sip. I’m not a real big white wine drinker, but for the hot summertime, this chilled on ice is a fantastic wine I highly recommend.￼￼ — 3 days ago
Beautiful color of light pink with a peachy hue.
On the nose raspberries, sweet strawberries, limes, grapefruits, spices, light herbs and light sea salt.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, spices, earth, light vegetables and black pepper.
Tangy finish with spices and bitter almonds.
This is an easy drinking Rosé from Sonoma Coast. A nice summer wine.
Fruity on the nose and earthier on the palate. Light and engaging. Crisp and refreshing.
Feels like a French Rosé with a touch of new world.
Better after 20 minutes of airtime, and will pair nicely with food. I had it all by itself by the beach.
13.3% alcohol by volume.

This wine is inky looking and carries a wonderfully demonstrative package of aromas. The nose has classic notes of graphite, but also features black tea, sage, oregano and a healthy lump of earth - that good, Sonoma dirt. On the palate are bright cherries, tea, herbs and minerals. The tannins are firm without being overbearing and the acidity is quite refreshing. You could chill this wine and open it next to the grill this summer - or you could have in cooler weather with a beef stew. — 4 days ago
Slightly hazy (unfined and unfiltered) straw gold. Inviting nose and medium bodied palate of underripe quince, citrus rind, and balsam with a bit of extra "texture" (light tannin?) from the process. Medium acidity shows from entry to lengthy, lemony finish. Russell Bevan does it again. A luscious California SB treated like it's baby boy, CS, yields a white wine that's ready for fuller fare like roasted pork or fowl, swordfish or shark, or a melange of firm roots and greens. Not your mother's SB. Drink now through 2025. — 8 days ago
