This is certainly in the window right now, and Aubert chards are one of those ‘happy place’ wines for me. PnP served chilled. Tropical fruits, lemon, orange zest, and lychee acidity very well balanced by vanilla, brioche, and light mineral notes. A perfect crisp, refreshing spring bottle that complimented the spice of several Asian fusion dishes. — 5 days ago
Opened this last night and was not impressed - seemed very disjoint. Decided to put the cork back in and put it in the fridge to see if some time brought it into better focus. What a difference that day made. Beautiful aromas of candied strawberry, terrific depth, and a lingering finish. Probably the most dramatic change for an Aubert pinot I’ve witnessed. If you have this in your cellar, I’d suggest either decanting it for a few hours or let it sit for a couple of more years. You will be rewarded! — 15 days ago
A fair weather day in the Berkshires today, got into the mid-70's...I'm not ready for the heat yet!
Strawberry / Raspberry / Citrus with Orange bias, perfect for enjoying outside after a day full of chores that the warmer weather oh so generously provides me. Yeah. — 9 days ago
Likely the last of Wind Gap for me - Pax sold stake to his partner (Charles Banks who is in prison for fraud). Pax will continue to make wine under the “Pax” label - his style always favors cool climate, low ABV, lean, whole cluster, not too out there but true to the natural wine sermon.
The 2013 Pinot is soft. Supple raspberry, boysenberry, and wild strawberry. Brick color from 6 years of age. It sings the New California song. — 18 days ago
