I actually found this at Costco..$17ish! Beautiful Chardonnay sharp citrus, tropical fruits, nice salinity, jasmine, mild creaminess like vanilla taffy not butter! Pnp might update pending little chill and aeration! Santa Barbara wines are a favorite! Cheers on this Friday evening! — 9 days ago
Final btl of my batch. About 1.5 yrs since the last btl and not much to add to my last note. Sweet red fruit, cocoa, incense, a touch of heat, hoisin/bbq notes, soft leather, wet leaf...fully mature. On the palate: good acidity and density...perhaps slightly jammy red fruit, leather, earth, still some finely grained, almost chocolatey tannin on the finish, which shows some heat. Good with our stew... — 20 days ago
Nose is intense. Some peach. Some white truffle? Very good.
Palate is peach juice. Good balance. Some spice. Delicious. Good acidity.

First encounter, aged St. Chinian Languedoc blend of 70/15/15 Syrah/Grenache Noir/Mourvedre. Mature red plummy with animal earthy savory notes and nice firm texture with acidic balance carrying through to finish. Still hints of oak at this age. Interesting. Great with Amahs pork. AA13 — 15 days ago
