Not sure what to think about this one. Less than 13% abv. This is a bottle that is a little bit perplexing, definitely not the best wine you have ever had, yet just can't stop sipping on. The nose of this is really interesting... peppermint, black cherry, ginger, cola. Entry has a touch of heat. Not necessarily acidic although it certainly progressed that way after being open for a few hours. Palate was underripe black cherry, mint, cola, herb, black tea and a hint of pipe tobacco. Medium bodied wine. Finishes rather soft and without much tannin. Really good balance and structure, although I do not think I would hold this wine for very long. This is my first Lemberger and I really should probably pursue others to compare as it is a variety I don't know much about. — 8 days ago
Pale color. Fresh cut lawn with floral notes on the nose. Whispers of peach pit fruit, followed by graphite with a acidic lime zest finish. This wine was better early in the bottle and when it was cooler. (Smoked salmon dip, smoked oysters, smoked pork loin, smoked chicken, with vegetable crudités- on the lanai) — 7 days ago
@Delectable this is Wedding Rock Single Vineyard Chardonnay
Stellar. I would blind this for a warm Puligny-Montrachet vintage. Delicate but grounded in spiraling flavors of grilled pineapple, white peach, and honeysuckle. All the oak nuances elevate the experience without making the viscosity thick or overpowering. Notes of creme fraiche, buttered toast, and creme brûlée encapsulate the palate and finish. All day you pick up flint and chalk with wild mushrooms. You get all the creaminess without losing freshness and acidity. I’m in love with this.
Dijon Clone planted in clay and limestone. 66% spontaneous fermentation and aged 16 months in French Oak.

This is Cabernet Franc in a Beaujolais style. Nose of this wine alone is worthy of 89. Bing cherry, brambleberry, oregano, white flowers, honeysuckle, full of cheer! Entry is medium bodied. Touches acidic for about 0.2 seconds and then goes to a brambly mineral dense red cherry fruit and wildflower. Gets quite a bit more brambly in the middle. Finishes with a candied cherry minerality almost like a dusty Luden's cough drop. Would have almost expected some bitter notes here but it never went that direction. Really quite a complex wine for the price paid. Although I don't really think this is a long term ager, it did require about 2 hours to fully express itself. Really neat wine. — 5 days ago
This is my first time having a FLX rosé. Very unique. This was a gorgeous deep pink in the glass. Oddly enough, this was really “spritzy” shortly after pouring. Being pinot and CF, there aren’t many of those sweet, tropical fruits you get on a lot of Napa & Sonoma rosés...watermelon rind, rhubarb tart and a distinct herbal flair aromatics. Acidity feels quite mellow so there is a definite round and soft feel here on the palate. Bruised cherries, strawberry skin and peach. This may sound odd, but there is a note here that reminds me of a cherry limeade. Very solid for the $20 price point. — 9 days ago
