Pure. Clean. Delicate. Fragile. Laser sharp. Not as much depth or length of finish as hoped but the up front focus was good stuff. Good bye malo oak and butter. Hello chard.

Acid trip. Great bones and just enough flesh. Love this. Best vintage yet?

Very pretty if not mind-blowing. Great value. A touch of tropical fruit alongside the standard golden apple gave it a nice little zing. A touch of minerality and solid presence of acidity complemented the silky mouthfeel.

Yup, this Mathiasson guy knows what he's doing. Super fresh & bright, with just enough roundness.

Solid core of acidity surrounded by lemon-honey flavors. More flesh than extreme south Napa Chards a la Watson Ranch (as one would expect). Lovely wine.
