This was everything I wanted: wonderfully balanced, delicious fruit, beautiful nose, great acidity, and the price is right! Should be on everyone's "go to" list. — 3 days ago
Usually available at Los Olivos Cafe this is from the 3rd Corner in Encinitas. Dirt and strawberry nose. Soft. Quite dark. 13.2%. 225 cases. I love the wines from the Storm brothers one is making wine in South Africa one is here in Santa Barbara. Dark deep cherry. Tea notes. Violets? Burgundian in style. Just beautiful and highly recommended. Available at Third Corner in Encinitas. — 5 days ago
Virile, yet tiny dancer light on the initial attack. Not rich, but a spreading carpet of complex, vibrating ripe black fruit with a healthy dose of black olive tapenade and balanced acidity. No noticeable oak and ready for the table NOW! Long soothing finish. Kudos Tegan! — 17 days ago
Not as sweet as the 14 BMT,
Prefer the 16 Noir over this one.
Jeb 98, only bottled in Mag format. At $100.00 per mag not bad,
The other 2016 reviews on Delectable are not this OGT, those scores scared me at first then I noticed they were misidentified.
That being said I don’t see the full bodied pedal to the metal Jeb Describes. I’d buy the 16 Noir over & over again but wouldn’t buy this one again. I’m hoping its a 2nd day wine, putting it back until tomorrow,
Thank you, next?
Definitely a day 2 wine — 15 days ago
Definite pepper. Had with BBQ ribs but tasted even better on its own. Want to buy a bottle to drink alone and finish off the night. — 13 hours ago
Bright yellow gold. Nose of baked quince and light butterscotch. Echoed on the full-bodied palate with a good backbone of medium plus acidity wrapped up inside. A rare bird in California Chardonnays in that it gives body, fruit, oak, and food-friendly freshness without overloading in any of them. I’m not always a fan of Wagner family works, but this under-the-radar Chardonnay is actually a good representation of the style. Good enough at regular price, but a steal when it’s on sale. Drink now through 2021. — 9 hours ago
