I’m a fan of SA and Loire Chenin so I was looking forward to this ✔️
👁: pale lemon with a tinge of green
👃: strikingly ripe fruit. Candied pineapple, green apple (but they kind that’s already turned yellow from ripeness), lemon, and butterscotch
👅: the same ripe tropical fruit, including mango and lychee. Balanced with an intense but well judged acidity. Smooth and knitted together quite well. A touch of bitterness on the finish.
Unexpected given ripeness, but this really works for me. 😋 — 8 days ago
I’ve had this wine several times, and it consistently makes me happy! Dark ruby color with notes of plum, fig, cedar but never jammy. Good acid/tannin and a mouthfeel that is velvety and satisfying! One of my go-to wines at a great price point. — 25 days ago
Unbelievably delicious ! A wonderful compliment to grilled salmon with Brussels sprouts and a baked sweet potato ! — a month ago
Our Valentines wine this year & wow, $17 on sale and we really loved it. Mine was the Proprietary Red and delicious. Bold with balance and velvet finish on the tongue . Can’t say enough . Another bottle soon to follow. — 8 hours ago

Browned butter aroma; coconut sweetness, butter, melon, a little bitterness on the finish. Indulgent Cali Chard with plenty of american oak. — 2 months ago
