Les Combettes Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Developed. Very poised and balanced. Clear and quite tangy, notes of orange and almost aged semi loon- like stuff. Interesting and still fresh. Good. — a month ago

Estate Howell Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Just as good as the past three vintages. Edit- Just needed a bit of time in the glass. It’s smoking now. Easily a 94 point SB! — a month ago

@Ron R Crazy as it sounds. I think it will get even better in the next 3 to 6 months. Crazy right?!?

Buena Tierra Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

Got this wine at a smoking good deal. After trying this with substantial food and aperitif type foods and nothing at all, this wine is more delicate than it seems. Nose is popcorn kernel, Asian pear and honeydew. Body of this wine with rather good acidity throughout. Hints of peach and pear and buttered popcorn with nice salinity. This wine doesn't seem to really hold up to significant fare, yet went very well with Brie cheese and crackers. Interesting to see how it would have gone with buttered popcorn! I think this one might mature over the next couple of years. But not doing bad at all right now. — 2 months ago
