My favorite white from the amazing night of 100 point wines. Soft, elegant well structured with a long butterscotch (think werther's) finish.

Almost a 91. But a bit short. Peaches and dried nuts. A little on the viscous side and to be honest with you I really didn't know what to expect. Leaner towards the finish. If I saw this on a discount for $40, I'd buy a couple of bottles. Rearding longevity, I just don't think this one is getting any better in the bottle, so might as well drink it now.

A great Chardonnay 6 years after vintage. Holding up well and probably still will be in 3-5 years.

Out of all wines I have had from Orin Swift, this is my favorite. Great fruit, moderate oak, long finish.

2012| button mushrooms, pear crisp, chamomile, yarrow, and nutmeg. It's complex. It's delicious. It's thought provoking. And I love it.
