Once the slight matchstick reduction blows off, this immediately becomes one of the most profound American Chenins I’ve ever tasted. Sourced from old vines patches in both Dry Creek, Sonoma and south of Sacramento. Riveting, detailed, oily in concentration and finishes close to a minute. Back label says this effort was encouraged by Leo Steen; go figure. My rating may prove conservative in a few years.

Pear and vanilla while wonderfully dry. Too much chill when served, let it warm up.
