Gold in the glass with very little aroma at first. As it warmed lemon curd, ripe pear and lanolin notes flowed. The central core of this 3 year old Chenin is structure, weight, and smooth as silk creaminess. Beautiful acid/ fruit balance at this stage; the wine improved as it warmed. Left me wanting more. One of the single best price for quality wines in California, if not the world. Hats off, Tegan. Every bottle rocks! — 2 days ago

This was solid but didn’t really go anywhere great and I wanted it to so bad. Cherry tobacco, blackberry and cedar. This bottle and the 3 others I brought to Wisconsin from Chicago all endured a ride in a wine suitcase in the back of a truck in the 15 degree Midwest winter. 3 of the bottles—Voerzio, Beringer and Harlan Maiden—all performed below expectations. The PM Les Pavots, however, was excellent. While I’ve never opened a Voerzio that young I’ve had consistently better experiences with the same vintages of the Beringer reserve and Maiden. I’m wondering if you cold weather dwellers think the cold transport played some role in what happened here. — 2 months ago
😮 Wow. A serious, sexy beast. Blend of 80% old vine zin, 15% petit Syrah, 5% Syrah. Dry Creek appellation. The last vintage of this wine was 2016. This is going to age forever. Shelby and Peter relocated to the Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley and bought/planted Bracken vineyard. Planted just upslope from Sojourner, southwest facing, majority planted to Pinot with a small amount of Chardonnay. Shelby is a wizard. — 7 days ago
Not too sweet, just perfect — a month ago
Dark fruit, velvety, well-balanced. At the cabin in northern Wisconsin. — 2 days ago
Bright clean nose, slight hints of oak. Smells very true to style. Sharp bright acidity, hints of citrus: predominantly lemon with some lime as well. Finishes smoothly with a creamy mouth and light lingering acidity. — 6 days ago
With the next Mailing List offer arriving this coming week it was time to check in on some of the older stash.
Despite the cork coming up in two pieces this is the best bottle to date.
Everything in the right place and for a CA Syrah at 15.3% with 10+ years of aging that requires very special winemaking skills (at least for my palate).
@Delectable Wine Your location app (still) has issues.
I searched for “City of Napa” and got Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as suggestions....?? — 9 days ago
