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. 😋 — 11 days ago

Color of ruby with purple shades, quite clear. Nose of chocolate, tobacco leaves, leather, dried strawberry, strength of alcohol, and blackberry. Nose is quite powerful. Taste is dominated by concentrated dried strawberry, ripe juicy grapes, some brown sugar, hint of flowering note, spice, a bit peppery, and a bit zest. Zest shows up more in the aftertaste. Low tannins but full of flavors. — 6 days 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. — 3 days ago
Can’t believe this is a 2007. From the Clonal Series that Greg Brewer put together when he was still at Melville, this wine is absolutely terrific. Beautiful notes of candied strawberries on the nose, this wine still has great balance, a pure, focused palate, and an elegant finish. An absolute testament to the ageability of pinots from the Central Coast, this one still has several more years of life left. Just terrific. — 5 days ago
Monthly WTF wine group tasting. This month’s theme was chardonnay from any region or vintage. Nice eclectic bunch! All wines tasted blind.
Ripping acid, even with 7yrs on it! Pure Meyer lemon upfront with added notes of honeysuckle, chamomile and underripe citrus. On the palate it was limestone and mineral driven. Slightly reductive. I called this Chablis. Nice imitator. Thanks @Jack Thompson . — 7 days ago
Delicious. Creamy and mild buttery taste maybe a little honey crisp apple. Yum. — a day ago
My favorite wine so far from our Naked Wines Subscription! — 9 days ago
Blend of Grenache blanc, Rousanne & Viognier
Jeb 92 and states it taste like a bottle 3 times the price looked up my cost, $14.99. I can definitely see this at $30.00-$40.00
The highly talented Joey Tensley has crafted an outstanding white wine inspired by the amazing value-driven whites he’s long cherished from the south of France. At first you’re greeted with hints of honey and cinnamon poured over freshly cut seasonal peaches. The aromatics are exotic and wild with plenty of orchard fruit, orange water, and middle-eastern spice. There’s plenty of bracing acidity to keep the wine fresh and bright on the palate with a solid fruit core. This Rhone-style white is arguably the best version at this price I’ve come across in quite awhile — 14 days ago
