I kiss this wine I kiss it up! This is stomp around my kitchen cheering myself drinking this as if i made it myself. My god it’s good. It is fascinating and balanced. It’s a gymnast that you watch and think...looks easy but...how’d that happen? Very cool wine. Cannot wait to try more Forlorn Hope.

Funny to think, but, this Cali Chenin has way more minerality and less fruit than Reau's Anjou

Great stuff. Citrusy, acidic, some herbaceous, savory notes. Lovely, refreshing summer wine.

13.4 % Goes down way too easily on a 90 degree day. Schist and limestone soils from the gold country. Fresh 🍋 lime
