Didn't really feel this wine. Had melon qualities and classic vouvray nose, but more light bodied than I like from a vouvray. Wouldn't go out of my way to drink this wine again.

Medium body. Honey and a little candied apple, but lacking acidity for roundness. Would probably not pick up again

Stony creek. Drinkable. Not as good as the stony creek Pinot.

The 2012 is off dry with good acidity. Good with stir-fry and hot peppers.

New carpet glue, sweet tarts and chalk on the nose. Tangerine and lime in the palate with a little more softness to the palate. Not a really overwhelming wine. - Drink now.

Creamy peach and honey with a shot of acidity that balances it nicely. Need to get more of this! Nice pick Joe.

A bit too sweet for my liking. Cut through the chili in the salmon dish I had, but on its own, a bit too much.
