Lemon wrapped in ‘Good and Plenty’. Interesting. Lingering finish.

Note to self...less Overpriced Chardonnay, more wines like this, please! Impeccable balance... impressive weight and impact, gorgeous complexity. Tocai, Ribolla, and a splash of Chardonnay... the wine is more Friulian than California. Bright pear, grass, and stone fruit notes... long, savory, herbal finish. The wine sings with crispy grilled Salmon and simple sautéed broccoli.

Pretty pale straw with a thin rim. What more is there really to say about Dan Petroski’s Massican wines? Beautifully expressive nose featuring a nice mixture of citrus fruit and floral flourishes. Crisp green apples, apricots, white flowers, and lemon rinds. The nose starts off as fresh and vibrant but becomes more nuanced over time with the emergence of honey.

Mostly Tocai Friulano and Ribolla Gialla with a splash of Chardonnay thrown in, he’s bringing Italy to California. There’s just a hint of oak through the mid palate with remarkable structure. Rich and full, there’s vibrant acidity. Clean and hyper focused without ever coming close to feeling like a run of the mill supermarket bottle. You know as soon as you open this that it’s elevated stuff, expertly crafted.

On the palate, more citrus fruit abounds. Apricot jam, honeysuckle, and melon. Stone minerality and green pepper play the background. Tons of delicious herbs that last forever. Very round and pretty on the finish. Every single one of these Massican wines are gorgeous in their own way but this one may be the best.

What a glorious Napa Valley blended white... crisp, bone-dry, with acidity and weight at 12.4 ABV. Tart green and yellow fruit with definite saline notes and just a touch of funk. Long grippy finish and a 30 sec aftertaste. So very much more esthetically and intellectually interesting than your average Calif chard or Sb. Just downright fun to drink.
