The best wine I had during was three tastings. Rich yellow apple and green pear, nice medium acid along with brûlée caramel and perfectly balanced butter. I cannot to see how this evolves.

Thought this was a goner at first, but with about a half an hour of air this rose from the dead. Definitely advanced and nutty, but complex and went well with our cheese plate lunch.

Meyer lemon bomb. Thick, waxy, creamy and a touch austere this young.

Tasty tropical fruit, butterscotch, sugary toffee oak. This is working really well after dinner, sitting around relaxing
