Coddington Chardonnay 2012

First discovered this wine at SingleThread Farms staff holiday party surrounded by Grand Cru white Burgundy. Concentrated and impressively layered showing ripe peaches, creamy vanilla bean, white flowers and hints of Gruner-like white pepper spice. Finishes with very good depth and focus. Absolute incredible value at sub $50 and a rare instance where my glass costs more than the wine....From the cellar of Blue Hill at Stone Barns. — 16 days ago

The Point Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

This has been well crafted and is up there for a top kiwi Bordeaux blend 12 years in the bottle and still fresh light on oak but no fruit bomb — 8 days ago

@Eric S i recommend the Mates Vineyard if you haven’t tried it. It would show well against any Chardonnay from anywhere.

Estate Chardonnay 2017

Half bottle. Medium gold color. Nose has butter and oak. Wine is exceptionally well balanced with a lovely texture. Lime and butterscotch on the palate. Medium minus finish that is on the tart side. Very solid recommendation. — 24 days ago

Warspite Cabernet Franc Blend 2012

A weekend for new world Bordeaux blends, apparently. This one is fragrant and so soft and approachable, with fruitcake spice and dark berries and dark chocolate; ever so drinkable. There’s depth and complexity but it has a lightness and prettiness — quite a contrast to the Tapanappa it’s sitting side-by-side with tonight. — a month ago
