Cigar box - my kind of waft!
Stewed prune, cranberry, cherry, cedar wrapped blackberry. Some medium to heavy weight. I have had several vintages and this is the oldest, and easiest drinking now. Bang for the buck - WA wine is fantastic.

During Channing daughters virtual wine tasting for fresh air home benefit. Very nice, light, can really taste the strawberry. We had the 2019. — 20 days ago
A great discovery. Soft in mouth for a Cabernet Sauvignon. Consistency reminiscing a California Pinot. Robust oak and wild fruit accents. A good experience — 20 days ago
The 2019 Snakes & Ladders consists of Sauvignon Blanc from the Citrusdal Mountains. It has a potent bell pepper and gooseberry nose that maybe lacks the complexity of John Seccombe’s Chenins. The palate is well balanced with good weight. Bitter lemon, orange peel and light saline notes define the finish. This is a fine Sauvignon Blanc that should drink well for 3–6 years.

The 2019 Paper Kite expresses the old-vine Sémillon with great clarity, presenting dried honey, walnut, touches of almond and a subtle smoky scent. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. More of a textural Sémillon than one of conspicuous flavors. Slightly resinous on the finish. Excellent.
