Brioche, baked apple, lots of minerality, tastes more like Cali chars — 7 days ago
Smoky minerals, black cherry, orange peel, violets, spice cake, licorice- just a few notes. There’s a lot going on here and it’s intensely satisfying. Grainy tannins, very lengthy finish. Just a superb young Morgon with effortless style and composure whose best years are still well ahead. — a month ago

Dinner Cindy Roy Jane crew 5/9/19 at Andiamo. Terrific Volnay. Earth and minerals and red fruit with balanced and complex palate and long finish. Good structure and weight yet lively on feet. Roys fav. — 9 days ago
Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.
White number one. In comparison to other Alsatian Rieslings I enjoy, this was certainly more on the mellow side. Even after time in the glass, very little notes of petrol or limestone. This showed more like a SB or better yet, an older Alsatian Pinot Gris. Had some oily characteristics with grilled Meyer lemon and honeyed chalk, but certainly more restrained in style. Obviously of nice quality, I think this is just the style to be more friendly with pairings as it paired well with crab cakes. — a month ago
This was terrific. Nice weight to it with a smoothness I wasn’t expecting. Notes of lemon cream and wet stone, this went down (a little too) easy. — 24 days ago
