This is quite a special wine. I don’t care what the others rated this. I like it. Purchased on my trip to Santa Barbara almost 6 years ago. Now I remember why I bought it at the tasting room. Nice floral bouquet, slightly acidic, light translucent color with less than 13 percent alcohol (that’s a good thing). Very good structure that would suggest this wine is in the middle innings and can probably last a few more years — 9 days ago

This has got to be one of my first 2018s to open, and while I’d normally refrain even if for only a bit longer, this producer has piqued my interest too much. Accolades are great and all, but many fellow winemakers have spoken highly of Dan’s project, which is enough reason to open and see how this is showing.
Normally for my palate, Hyde Chardonnay’s show a lot of bright stone fruit with high acidity (ex: Aubert’s Larry Hyde & Sons...plenty of acidity, lighter style, big fruit up front). Dan has taken Hyde’s fruit and put it front and center. Everything about this wine is about the vineyard. Crystalline and pure. On the nose, it is very ripe without being boozy...grilled lemon, lemon-lime tart, even some kiwi, with floral honeysuckle and sea salt. The palate reveals such an intense expression of the fruit with hardly any notice of oak. This has a strong mineral core and high acidity type backbone, but the mid palate and finish show plenty of ripe lemon, powdered lemon bar tart type flavors. 12.7ABV! Nothing sweet, rich or flabby about this wine. Not sure how it ages, but very enjoyable. — 24 days ago

Sparkling Cidre like Chenin Blanc from the Natural wine project Testalonga... Pear, floral and mineral. Exciting, surprising and very pure and direct Chenin Blanc!
Dazu: Mangold/Spinat - grüne Oliven - Zitrone / Bissara / Kichererbsen - Salzzitrone - Fenchel — an hour ago
Project Oenos Nature Muscat d’Alexandrie 2018
Organic & Natural, slightly cloudy in the glass and very fresh & quite expressive in the nose with fresh apples, a touch of cider, rose water, fresh lychee and a whiff of sea breeze.
On the palate this is light, lively, joyous, dancing with fresh apples & rose petals.
This is a very nice natural Muscat from Limnos, displaying joyously the characteristics w/o becoming too clumsy. A very nice one! — 2 months ago
Strawberry and watermelon on the nose. Easy drinking for a warm day! Great value. Found when living in Gig Harbor! — 3 days ago
