Fantastic and first time having this cuvee. Rich and mineral with killer acidity. Lovely. — 3 months ago

Really good Chardonnay, not buttery, nice and dry. — 2 years ago

Aubert

Carneros Chardonnay 2013

The Carneros wines from Aubert are usually not my favorites - they have tended to be a bit over extracted for my tastes - but I may have to reconsider that if I let them age for a bit: this 2013 is excellent. Still doesn’t touch the Lauren vineyard wines - far and away my favorite - but this one has settled down considerably since we last tried it a few years back. Well integrated, and beautifully balanced provide you keep it below cellar temp (gets too flabby if it’s too close to room temp). Of course, this is splitting hairs: the starting point for Mark’s wines start is awesome and we just go from there! — 4 years ago

Lauren Bryce Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

amazing revisit. This 2005 Lauren Bryce still is bold napa cab! Much of the vigor of its past has transitioned to a layered palette of earthy flavors and spicy goodness. We have a few in the cellar we’ll keep a few more years and check in then. yum. — 6 months ago

Proprietor's Cuvée 2014

Got this at a steal because they were cleaning out some inventory. Lovely Bourdeaux-style blend with 50 CS, 25 CF, 17 Malbec, and 8 PV. Nice blend, drinking beautifully now. Good on its own or with food. — 4 years ago

Cuvée Méline Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

The ‘Cuvee Meline’ is a beautiful white wine made by the talented Dr. Kit Singh. On the nose this has good range from honeysuckle to cantaloupe and shades of Pink Lady apple that all connect in the glass. The palate has a good combination of freshness and weigh, delivering bright orchard and citrus fruit flavors that combine with minerals and shades of wild mushroom. While delightful in its youth, this will evolve well over the next decade. Drink 2019-2026- 91

UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Outstanding! Lemon cream, honey, and caramel. Zesty with a long finish. I love Aubert Chardonnays (their Pinots are pretty great too), but this is a special bottle. I may be slightly partial to their Lauren wines, but this is stunning. — 2 years ago

This bottle was opened next to a ‘13 Aubert Lauren and I’ll be darned if I wasn’t impressed at how good this was at this age. Very bright and tropical fruits on the nose, but nowhere near the signature lemon cream I get with Aubert’s SVD chards. Acidity is much more mellow than its Carneros counterpart. Light on its feet on the palate with lemon, honeyed mango and honey roasted cashews. Thanks for opening @Mark Flesher — 5 years ago

Secondary to curiosity, this one was opened today when I saw the 2013 Lauren was out to play. Similarities, yet quite a few differences. First: this is undoubtedly Aubert. The robust style and backbone is there. Honeysuckle, malon, and mango nose, almost tropical. The entry is mango and melon. Rounded edges. Fair amount of acidity throughout. Really impressed having just received these. Finishes with some stiff oak, so I still believe improvement is expected here. But, compared to the 13 Lauren, this one seemed to have more fruit, yet lacked complexity. Not too sure that time will help this wine gain that or not. Time will tell! 92.7 for me
