Sweet, syrupy, with a slight dryness that was surprising on the finish. — a month ago

Dry Napa Valley Fumé Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Pale lemon with complex aromas of fresh ripe citrus and tropical fruits with grassy herb mineral notes. On the palate flavors of peach, apple and melon with lemongrass and herb notes. Long finish ending with juicy fruit, herb and grassy notes, lively acidity with mineral character. Outstanding! — 14 days ago

Kiona Vineyards

Columbia Valley Chenin Blanc 2021

Pale yellow, excellent clarity. Pear and orchard fruit notes in nose, lemon and peach in the mouth. Fruity, soft, marvelous stuff. Builds in crispness over time. Great value for a common supermarket wine. A neglected varietal, shamefully. — 6 days ago

Laherte Frères

Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 2015

wow. I’ve only had a smattering of Laherte wines but, wow, that’s gonna change. This wine is just gorgeous, lovely density of fresh orchard fruit and citrus, ginger hints, green apple, spice, not yeasty or oxidative. It’s all in harmony and just delicious. Will last and likely improve. — 3 days ago

Monoparcelle 469 Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019; Very hot today (96°) needed cold wine relief.
Nose has under-ripe green apple, lime zest, peach, crushed lemongrass, green melon, river stones and wet chalk.
Palate has under-ripe pineapple, key lime, yellow grapefruit, under-ripe white peach, crushed limestone and faint salinity with medium acidity.

I'm familiar with this producer, but the first time seeing this single lieu-dit (Les Sentiers) selection. Very nice effort here. Double decanted with 2H rest. 93-94

Cru Garage Sauvignon Blanc 2006

How a couple of these bottles landed in my cellar is a story best saved for another day. Needless to say, this is sixteen year old Sauv Blanc from Baja California by a renowned producer in the region.

The wine has a medium to deep yellow tone with floral and mature pineapple scents. The pallet is two dimensional: starts round with white tea flavors then turns to waxy buttery and vanilla flavors.
Light, low alcohol; the finish is slightly acidic and citrus but substancial.

Turned into an interesting wine where I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. My brain is baffled as parts of the wine taste a lot like a young heavily oaked Cali Chard. Must pair the remaining bottle; thinking a creamy and slightly spicy chile poblano soup. Hopefully that’ll clear up my baffling…
