Crazy perfume on this. So so floral with masses of ripe black raspberry and roses, as well as peony, lavender and violet. Tart red and purple fruits gradually build on the palate. Citrus zest, spice and salty clay minerals linger on the tongue. Seamless, vibrant, and still tastes really young.
Enjoyed every drop of this bottle over a week. It is singing. — 24 days ago

This young Pinot Noir from California is already drinking very nicely.
Big, bold and opulent. Rich, yet elegant. Very fruity on the palate.
Showing black fruits with wood, vanilla, earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf and light green vegetables.
Spicy finish with soft tannins.
I prefer drinking this at around 5 year of age.
I gave it a long decant (2 hours), which callmed it down a bit.
A Pinot Noir for the Cabernet lover.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

A friend said he would bring a Peter Michael red,so I thought it would be fun to bring a white.
The opening nose is predominantly citrus and jasmine, not the ripe stone fruits I was expecting. Golden apple, pear, roasted nuts, and hint of brioche followed as it opened up in the glass. Viscous but not heavy on the palate with well judged acidity. Beautiful balance between richness and delicacy. Long mineral driven finish.

Very similar to the 2016 I opened 6-8 months ago, yet more open for business. Some of these wines have a reputation for “large and in charge”, but this was supremely balanced, toeing the line between Sonoma and white burgundy with richness. Whereas Aubert’s chards can be more powerful (and is normally my favorite), I’m always pleasantly surprised at how these show.
Aromatically it revealed sugar frosted stone fruits, guava, white peach, caramel dipped golden delicious apples and baking spices. It has a beautifully textured palate that starts as though it’s going to be dense, but finishes with a gorgeous lifted profile and plenty of acidity. Added notes on the palate of powdered lemon bar, floral honeysuckle, whipped lemon cream and even some honey roasted cashews. I’d pop this 2017 before the 2016 with how open it is, but it will cruise another 7-10yrs, easily. — a month ago
