Lauren Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Shay A
9.5

A few fun bottles from last Friday.

I’ve had quite a few vintages of this wine and they all remain very consistent, so I won’t create a new tasting note aside from calling out the power and richness this highlighted next to a few other different Aubert’s on the table. Lauren is consistently my favorite offering from Aubert because of the profile it displays...so much concentrated fruit alongside honeyed sea salt, lemon cream and marzipan. This 2014 is still powering through and may even get better over the next couple years. Thanks

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018

Aromas of lemon curd and white flowers. Crushed gravel and stone fruit on the palate. Seemingly a softer oak treatment than his single vineyard chards. Bright acidity on the finish. A wonderful blend. — 14 days ago

So consistent. We are happy we are on the allocation. Honeysuckle and butterscotch play out on the nose. Beautiful display on the palate. Starts with a burst of energy, which effortlessly glides onto bright citrus notes, with sherbet. So clean and refreshing, we could drink this like water! — 8 days ago

UV Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

9.4

One thing Aubert wines have in common is that they are all very different.
This pinot is relatively extracted, and it shows on the nose and palate. Notes of red currants, cedar and flowers on the nose. Tannins are prominent and provide texture. Perfect balance and long sweet finish make this a textbook pinot. This will cellar for many years to come.

Sugar Shack Chardonnay 2014

Excellent...but not my favorite of Mark’s chards. Might just need a bit more time, but I thought the alcohol and sweetness of the new oak overpowered this one a bit. But, this is splitting hairs: still an awesome wine! — a month ago

IMO... it is was it is. Except Larry & Sons / Ritchie might get better. Just 14’s from Mark.

Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2017

9.4

A few fun bottles from last Friday.

This only solidified my thought that Aubert’s Hudson chard is best enjoyed closer to release than their other single vineyard designates. Yellow fruit, powdered sugar lemon bar, and a “juicy fruit” note I commonly associate with Peter Michael chards. Great mouthfeel thanks to rich viscosity and enough acidity to keep it entertaining. Thanks

Carneros Chardonnay 2017

Lemon peel, apples, and floral notes. The oak seems to be kept nicely in check by the acidity. Was expecting a bigger mouthful and it freshness was a pleasant surprise. — 2 days ago

Not quite as good as the 15. In it’s defense... a bit of time certainly will help. — 10 days ago

Eastside Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

Just a huge fan of Aubert Chardonnays. Melons, honey, toasted almonds, followed by concentrated citrus and a long mineral finish — 2 months ago
