Rich and honeyed. Balanced with a minty acidity. Polished and long. Of it’s type, gorgeous

Never tried any of these before. Classic Cali Chard but really nice acidity to match.

Fun to try one of Aubert’s more acidic chards with age...still drinking just fine. Gained some darker color. Guava, mango, nectarine on the nose and palate with a limestone type finish.

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee lunch...always such a treat to attend. This week, Dan hosted. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All blind as usual.

These Carneros chards from Aubert always throw me for a loop. I pegged this as a west coast Chardonnay, but thought it was a Kistler. Very sharp mineral notes and acid...very different than Aubert’s other chards. I’ve not had the Hudson which is similar. This started off sweeter than expected and really transformed in the glass to show more floral/honeyed cashews that led me to west coast Chardonnay.

Brief tasting notes from the annual Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival. Whites knocked it out of the park this year.

Was kind of shocked a wine of this caliber would be at a mass tasting. Figured it would be one of their appellation wines...imagine my surprise when I saw it was their LH&S! 2016...BABY. Almost a sin to drink these this young, but this drank better than other young Aubert’s I’ve had. Laser focused minerality, lemon tart, lemon cream, toasted almonds.

This is more like it, right @David L ? On the nose at pop and pour, it had a sulfur/rubber note to it. Faded a bit with an hour of being open...went more to toasted hazelnut. On the palate, Aubert’s signature lemon cream came in to play. Beautiful texture. Wraps the palate in almost a cotton candy note and burnt nutmeg. Best Larry & Hyde I’ve had.

My least favorite of Mark’s single vineyards Chardonnays . But oh soooo good. Would recommend a 30 minute decanting .

Holding up very well but a little too oaky for me
