Just lovely. The Povençal/Rhône blend mixes acidity, ripe fruit and palate weight in the just the right proportions. The skin contact gives it the texture that holds it all together. Great, refreshing, complex, more-ish and just plain drinkable.

Apricot, pear and hay on the nose with lemon zest and chalky tannins on the palate.

So good!! Love this little wine from the Sierra foothills. A warmup for the more robust Stonecrusher!

2014 vintage aged beautifully. Medium mouth feel, honeysuckle and other floral notes. Can’t wait to enjoy again soon. Paired great with sushi.

Amazing! Full bodied white that is not chard! Evolves as it warms but honey, pear, citrus, flowers, apples, a touch of brioche. Lingers in the palate for minutes. Goirgeous!
