If you do anything in your life, find a 6-7 yr old Felton Road Pinot or their Chardonnay at 3-4 yrs old. Decant it hours. The Chardonnay served at near room temperature. You will thank me. The fruit, complexity and acidity get my highest recommendation. It extraordinary Burgundy & style at a fraction of the price. Crossroads of new & old world.

Classic Central Otago dark brooding character, but with more elegance than Gibbston Valley or Valli. The nose is all blue and black fruit, with a vein of cedar spice, Med-full bodied, complex, with a silky mouthfeel. Serious weight, but not heavy. A cross between the dark weight of Otago and a good Gevrey. Strong buy. — 19 hours ago
Ate this with Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food. Really opened up after a while and paired wonderfully. Need to give it at least 20 minutes or so before it shows his true expression of rose petals and light chewy fruit. Cool round flavors with enough structure to keep things balanced.￼￼ — 10 days ago
Yellow color with strong lime-green accents; some reduction—which aired out in 30 min—followed by refined and elegant (not heavily oaked) tropical fruit like papaya and honey melon, and mushrooms and vanillin-sugar; taste is fresh, vibrant, lightly oaky; with a medium-length finish that was a bit spicy. Lovely! — 2 days ago
Good density of red fruits/black cherries. Earthiness, spice, and cedar. Some tertiary notes starting to show - fruit leather and tobacco. Bright acidity and medium structure. Enjoyed outside on a beautiful 65+ degree night in Asheville! — 2 days ago
Reliably good, lots of watermelon, and great summer rose — 5 days ago
