His whites are exceptional. Not a big fan of the Reds.

With spring in the air, it’s time to get your SB on.
We were expecting 17 vintage to be a bust, but these guys proved us wrong. The nose is incredible with jasmine, honeysuckle and white flowers. Palate reveals nectarines and lemon and quince. So structured on the palate with bright acidity, and complimentary sweetness. Finishes with verve and urgency. Wifey gave it a 95. Who am I to argue...

First stop on our MD trip this year was to Aperture Cellars in downtown Healdsburg.

Second wine tasted at Aperture Cellars with Lauren. Pale lemon lime yellow. A bit of hay on the nose to start followed up by some lemon zest. Nice sharpness on the palate with medium plus acidity (7.5/10) and medium to medium plus body. Refreshing palate with a touch of white flowers, sandy crushed rocks and some green tree fruits. Long finish that needs a little bit of air to open up. Drink till 2024.

(92+)

Tasted at the tasting room and retails for $35.00.
