Cider straight from the source, Patrick of Patois disgorged this bottle for us when we visited his production site in the spring of 2020. Fun and lovely co-fermentation. — 12 days ago

Among the Top 5 annually BEST CF’s in the old dominion. Rich but not over bearing or over-extracted. Fresh and energetic acid carry thru to the mid-palate, while enough wood tannin cleans up for the long red fruited jet stream. Ready for any culinary challenge, yet so sophisticated it can be sipped with marvel! — 10 days ago

This is a young Sparkling wine from Sonoma Coast. Tangy, spicy and easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel.
Nicely balanced and delicate, with nice complexity. Crisp and refreshing.
This vintage sparkling wine Needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Good by itself and better with food. Will pair nicely with oysters and seafood. I paired it with caviar.
A blend of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir. Aged in used French oak barrels. Disgorged in August 2021. Made in the traditional method.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

Wow then and wow ‘now’….this 2014 build is a testiment to this rarely planted varietal in the cooler northern corner of the state. This extended barrel aged, cooler vintage had plenty of acid/phenolics at 7.5 years old. Plenty of dried violets and sage to frame and seasoned black cherry attack. Absolutely wonderful with bratwurst and sautéed peppers and onions! I hope to get 2017 Reserve next trip up. Sturdy and medium/full weighted, time has mellowed and harmonized acid/tannins to taste terroir completely :) ￼ — 11 days ago
