An utterly exuberant Sauvignon blanc, totally unlike a Loire wine, but excellent. Lemongrass, wax, lime zest, salt, plum flesh, very complex fruit qualities that make it happy and responsive to food. — 2 months ago
At Palmetto Bluff. Cool breeze on a porch. Smooth fruit forward. Not much tannin. — 5 months ago
medium golden yellow; muted, lemon zest, wet stone; saline, stone fruit; medium bodied, good acid backbone, 14.1% ABV; sourced from vineyard on bluff 5 miles from Pacific Ocean, whole cluster pressed and fermented in seasoned French oak, made by owner/winemaker Kurt Beitler, grandson of Charlie Wagner and nephew of Chuck Wagner co-founders of Caymus Vineyards; $45 — a year ago
The palate confirms the nose with mineral and citrusy aromas of limes, pears and green apples. Well-balanced acidity. 12.8% ABV. A very refreshing chardonnay from the Eola-Amity Hills in Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA.
The pioneers used the name Eola as a reference to the aeolian harp. A wind instrument named after Aeolus, the Greek god of the wind. The gap in this area of the Willamette Valley ushers in howling winds from the Pacific Ocean which are then trapped in the Coastal Range. Cheers!

Kite Tail is from the bluff top on the estate where the soils are well drained and the winds are high. Slowly harvested over 3 weeks and then fermented to full malolactic. It then spends 16 months in 50% new french oak. Definitely a bit on the richer side of the spectrum, but the freshness of the fruit and the cutting acidity make it a high quality example of cool weather cali chard. — a year ago
Lovey pale gold color with a hint of leaf green. Medium body, Pear and honeysuckle on the nose. Pit fruit, floral notes, & mild juicy acidity with subtle, unidentifiable minerality on the finish. (Grilled rubbed pork chops, cauliflower pearls, w/ truffle & asparagus cream sauce) — 2 years ago
