Gorgeous. Even better after another year on it. Jamminess has died down and it’s now a beautiful, more subtle zin. — 3 days ago

Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

15’ Aubert Ritchie. Best Ritchie I’ve enjoyed from Mark to date? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Medium + bodied. Beautifully balanced Chardonnay. White peach, splash of pineapple core, apricot, white toast, sprinkle in a bit of floral spices. 3 favorites from this vineyard are Château Boswell- Arista- Aubert. Cheers. -at BLT Honolulu, Hawaii — a month ago

Two Birds Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Make be on the back side of its life, still a solid pinot. Cherry and raspberries dominate the pallet. Floral bouquet on the nose. Higher acidity than i remember. — 4 months ago

Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

So much going on in the glass. It’s all at once fresh and lifted by great acidity while also showing notes of honeycrisp apple and brioche. Finishes long with a nice toast on the end. Just delicious. — 23 days ago

Banfield Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Just sensational! Serve at cellar temperature/close to room temperature. Better then the critics scored it. One of the few times I’ve scored a wine higher then most wine critics. Aubert like!?! - at Manta - Mauna Kea , Hawaii — a month ago

UV-Lucky Well Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.

This was super intense and perfumed. Young. Feel like there may be some use of whole cluster here? Massive amount of ripe black cherries, cola, potpourri and sandalwood. Acidic, with very compact fruit alongside some herbal/stemmy? notes. Thanks,
