Aubert

Chardonnay Powder House 2017

Ron R
9.5

Just a stunning example of a chard. Our only bottle of this designation.
Brioche, brown sugar and capsicum on the nose. Palate surprises with a touch of effervescence, which subsided. Very tropical notes, with a touch of spice box. Finishes with marzipan and moderate sweetness - Inn at Pound Ridge (Jean Georges). Date night.

I just received my allocation email from Aubert today. I took as much as I could afford. Powder House is strong.

Vintages Wine Company

Vintner's Reserve Los Carneros Syrah 2013

Dark red/purple color. Smells like both colors of licorice, dark blackberries, and good cherry cough syrup. Flavors are full and woodsy. Bit like wood stain covered pine. Has a bit of forest floor and barnyard. Thick boy. Bitter with plenty of oaky, smokey stuff to chew on. A good example of CA power packed Syrah. — 9 days ago

Brut Carneros Sparkling Blend 2011

Wow this has aged wonderfully. Rich and creamy with apple crisp and toasted brioche. Full of fruit but still dry enough to keep complex, fun, and interesting. — 14 days ago
