Pale lemon color with fine creamy mousse and fast bubble flow. Medium intensity aromas of stone fruits, blossom, bread dough and citrus. On the palate flavors of golden apple, peach, lemon citrus and honeysuckle with biscuit toast and nutty notes. Long finish, almost full-body ending with hints of biscuit and citrus. Very Good, will improve a bit more in the bottle. Tasting Sample. — 3 months ago
July 4th Friday was a total blowout! Killer bottles one after another. Here are just a few of the bottles we all enjoyed!
I don’t think I’ve ever had a SauvBlanc with as much grapefruit as there was here. Wow. It dominated every part of the wine, with added pink sea salt, lemon rind and sharp acidity. More than anything, this just seemed really young. Hold for another 2-3yrs. — 4 months ago
The nose is beautiful. Ruby; plum, black cherries, creamy black raspberries, dark spice, dark expresso roast, dark, rich soils, dry & fresh tobacco, leather, amazing, slightly candied, fresh, bright florals of; red, blue and purple.
The body is full and shows the beauty of the vintage, silky & velvety. Ruby; cherries, plum, black cherries, creamy black raspberries & strawberries, dark spice, dark expresso roast, dark, rich soils, dry stones, dry & fresh tobacco, leather, amazing, slightly candied, fresh, bright florals of; red, blue and purple. The acidity is round and gorgeous. The lush, ruby, ripe, well balanced finish persists a long while with heated spices on the long set. Another wine that will increase by 2-3 points with proper cellaring, 10-25 years.

Heck of a Napa Cab. 15% (stated) ABV, but didn’t taste quite so alcoholic. Some earth and good black and dark red fruits. Enjoyed with a bone-in ribeye and assorted mushrooms as the main, and three assorted cheese course. Like much of California wine, just doesn’t tie into the food the way old world wines do.

@Delectable Wine this is the Rosé Blanc re Noirs of this wine. It was not in the database.
100% Pinot noir. Herbal strawberry nose with graphite and shale kind of thing. Entry is darker. Almost seemed carbonated more than bubbly. Black cherry notes throughout with wild herbs. Finishes rather light, more to a strawberries and cream side. Really interesting for a sub-40 dollar price. Regarding longevity, really quite unsure here but I'd drink these now vs later. — 5 months ago
13’ Judge Palmer G lll. Ruby red in color. Ready to roll!! The palate is full of black fruits-reveals layers of silky, refined tannins & a firm structure. Providing power with finesse & grace. Drinking now, another decade in it.
This is significantly better then the 2012. — 2 months ago
