Loads of tropical, squishy fruit with a slight whiff of Gorgonzola. We weren’t eating blue cheese so it wasn’t coming from anywhere else!

Such a massive presence. Oily, fat texture, huge oak and cream. No restraint or subtlety at all, for better or worse.

Ripe apple and pear. 100% M/L. Popcorn butter. On the palate, tropical fruit, toffee, vanilla, smoke, and hazelnut. Creamy.

Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside.
Golden straw with aromas of sweet stone and tropical fruit with vanilla oak scents. On the palate peaches, melon and pineapple, with soft spice, rich & creamy. Lingering smooth finish, did not disappoint. Delicious!

While stuck in wine purgatory, this is all I could find to buy here in Florida. Reliable as usual, with less Oak and buttery finish than other vintages. It was likable.
