Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone fruit and spice notes, aged in 40% new French oak. On the palate apple, peach and tropical fruit flavors with a nice dollop of citrus and oak. Well balanced, fresh long finish ending with creamy mineral character. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago
Giving less aromatically than expected but this is excellent on the palate. So much great minerality with honeysuckle and a bit of white fruit. Long piercing finish. Quite nice.
Update: bumping up on day two. Stony minerality really comes through. Excellent balance. Crazy amount of tartaric crystals. — 12 days ago
14’ Aubert UV-SL. Wine Nerd Herd virtual tasting. Been fortunate enough to have this wine a dozen times. Unlike the 2013 I had last week, this has seen better days. Still delicious ￼& won’t turn down a glass/bottle. It certainly will drink for many years to come. The 2013 has got another 5/8 years in it.. ￼￼￼ I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase a case of the 13.￼
Makes points of subtlety & finesse, with touches of cream, smoky oak, apple & pear, light acidity ,falls short towards the end of the glass. Ending with a poached pear & oaky finish. — 10 days ago
California all the way but so well balanced! Hits you in the nose with aromas of butter, lemon, ripe apples, ripe white peach, vanilla, spice, nutmeg, and pecans.
Full body, high acidity, well balanced even with strong spice characteristics. Ripe golden apples, apple pie filling, peach, spice, clove, and anise. Coats the mouth well and leads to a medium plus finish. — 3 days ago
In a summer-salad mood and a lighthearted Chardonnay brightens the meal and lends another level of richness to the palate. Pale golden hue with malolactic, full notes, alongside poached d’Anjou pear, peach, and cantaloupe. Vintage 2014. ABV 14.1%.

There’s something very special about this wine, but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
A unique presentation, with grapefruit, lemons and limes. Excellent acidity, which brings just the right amount of tension. A honied sweetness completes what is a standout expression of Sonoma. — 21 days ago
