Ode to E Assortment Syrah Grenache Blend 2004

This is one of the sexiest thing you can ever taste in your glass.
So fresh and young. The alcohol and the concentration are super integrated, making it so drinkable and extremely pleasant. Would love@to try this in 20+ year from now.

In The Abstract White Blend 2012

Deep yellow in color with a golden hue.

The nose is so interesting with lots of unique flavors. Oak, vanilla, nuts, citrus, honey and spices.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with yellow apples, citrus, lemons, apricots, minerals, honeysuckle, oak, herbs, vanilla, flowers, spices, earth, white pepper and light vegetables.

Long finish with limes and almonds.

This is a beautiful 11-year-old White blend from California. Showing a soft mouth feel with nice complexity and good balance.

Drinking so nicely right out of the bottle at this point. Elegant and soft. Rich and fruity. Opulent, spicy and interesting.

A great sipping wine, really tasty and just a gorgeous wine.

Robert Parker 97 points.

A unique blend of 37% Chardonnay, 31% Roussanne, 16% Petite Manseng and 16% Viognier. Aged for 19 months in (27% new) French Oak barrels and in concrete egg vessels.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

I would not have predicted a Cali white with 15.2% alcohol would still be drinkable, let alone this good. After 11 years!

Piranha Waterdance Syrah 2014

2014 vintage. Last tasted 4.26.23. Decanted both times. Deep, thoughtful nose interspersed with bludgeoned moments. Massive bod. A great blood orange streak in there from mid-palate to the not so bitter end. Still carrying plenty of baby fat and built for the long haul. 1.24.24. — 5 months ago

Mr. K The Noble Man Alban Vineyard Chardonnay 2002

2002. Wow. Beautiful and elegant. Only 10% abv according to the label but I’d guess higher. Petrol, honey, Corn Pops cereal, dill, mandarin oranges, golden raisin. This is amazing. — 7 months ago
