Oh snap! The 2017 Amador County is an absolute cracker served at cellar temperature. Please don’t make the mistake of chilling these. On the nose, it’s stone fruits, lanolin and some sort of citrus blossom I think...it was was floral but I couldn’t pin it down. On the palate, this danced with minerals and a tongue smacking finish. Light and yet such a performer. A hit with everyone. Drink now or hold.

This was pure infanticide. Delicious nonetheless. Beeswax, quince, lanolin, herbal tea, and a mix of fresh orchard fruit. This has years ahead. I’d like to try this in another five years.

The nose is floraly and citrusy. Flavors of Honey, beeswax, citrus, dominate the palate with a touch of minerals. Long, dry finish. Great acidity. Refreshing on a hot day.

Delicious. Lemon zest, minerality, herbs and green apple. Focused and easy to gulp.

Awesome white that worked well with assorted bites at The Progress in SF. Honeyed citrus, mineral, and golden apple. First time for me — impressive!
