Lemon curd, blanched almonds, medium body, nice balance.

Not bad. Not as good as our preferred French white. Would drink it, but may not buy it again - given it costs more than Feuvre or Sancerre.

Aged for about 8 months in stainless steel. Consistent quality. Light yellow with nose of bright fruit and subtle spice. On the palate, crisp apple and yeasty mineral tones with a very light touch of citrus. Nice acidity and balance ending with lemon notes. Very Enjoyable, nice value! Tasting Sample!

Fruity smell, smells very refreshing. Pretty sweet, very refreshing to drink. Very miniscule tingles on the tip of the tongue. Doesn't carry to back. No tannins, a little sharp at the back of the throat. Not super complex, but good to drink as a white. kind of minerally aftertaste. Goes well with Cypress Grove, Humboldt fog cheese (delicate, creamy, slightly sharp at rind)

Chalk, lemon oil, almonds, and ripe pair. Nice. Little light at the finish.

Wonderful wine, tasting of apricots. Slightly powerful but very drinkable and smells like champagne. Very well balanced.

Nice nose of white flowers, sea salt, and Meyer lemon. Apricot, sour cream, slight minerals and faint walnuts on the palate. This lacks the acidity and mineral grip I'm used to with quality Montagny.
