Opens like a Savennières, three hours later it’s creamier and rounder like a lemon Meringue pie. Ripe apricot, honey, beeswax, chive, acacia, lemon, cream Fraiche, lemon pie, stony minerality, richly textured on the palate with the right amount of phenolics and an ultra long and pleasing finish. Such a lovely wine!! Elevated acidity. Medium gold in color. — 5 days ago

Needs 60 minutes to calm down. Do not drink before then.
Nose is tropical. Lovely.
Palate -elegant tropical fruit. Sort of this creamy tropical elegance.
Long elegant tropical finish.
As this opens it becomes much more elegant. Almost a tropical perfume.
An hour in this gets crazy. Tropical flower perfume. Insane. Oh my god. Like a walk in a rainforest filled with tropical fruits during a rainstorm with the rain aerating the first with tropical fruit and flower perfume. Elite aromatics. Jesus Christ good. Palate is elegant. Almost golden. With a bit more grip and density this would be even higher scoring. Internal aromatics are a thing of beauty. Papaya guava. Wow. Wow. Wow.

The 2020 vintage is Savagnin, Chardonnay, Bergeron, and Savagnin Rose Musqué, and it’s by far my favorite Shasta-Cascade White yet.
Super hazy onion skin hue. Saline, savory, and herbal, with notes of cantaloupe, white peach, preserved lemon, kaffir lime, musk, lemon thyme, sage, white grapefruit, yellow apple, honeysuckle, cider, clay, wet stone. Medium+ body but lots of acidity to keep it bright and fresh. Very unique, interesting, and delicious. — 4 months ago
Cerises noires, prunes et vanille dans un bel équilibre... un délice
