North Coast Gemischter Satz. Aromatic and weighty and sappy and delicious when thoroughly chilled, fat and blowsy and uninteresting as it warms. So drink it cold and love it!

Fat with a Gentil character. Heavy feel. Hoping for something racy and mineral driven. Good drink with food though.

Not your swiss sylvaner-riesling, this has a rich mouthfeel and slight pungency. Great for a warm afternoon.

An interesting #newworld #fieldblend that is quite aromatic and spicy from the #gewurztraminer and very linear and sharp on the palate due to the #sylvaner There was some bitterness on the short finish. #arnotroberts #whiteblend #sonomavalley #california #ctbucklinwine

13% alc.
3 barrels made. $35/btl.

From AR note sheet:
"61 year old dry-farmed white field blend of Sylvaner, Riesling and an assortment of other obscure varieties planted in fluffy white volcanic soils at the base of the western flank of Mount Veeder in the Sonoma Valley. Whole cluster pressed, fermented with native yeast in stainless steel, and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months."

Quite good. Good acidity, floral, complex, some honey notes though dry. Seems like a year did this good though it’s got plenty left.

Lovely blend of sylvaner and other grapes. Lively acidity and maybe a touch of residual sugar. Great for summer.

Holy cow, was this good. I guess I was not anticipating how tasty this would be. A blend of Sylvaner and Riesling. Apple, pear, and some citrus. If you have any open it up...its drinking beautifully.
