Most convincing bottle yet. Hits the magic balance where it is dry on the palate and yet tastes fully ripe and nearly sweet. Good choice w brarwurst and creamy mashed potatoes.

14' Sandlands Chenin Blanc Amador County. Only 5 barrels made of this .

Palate- Lemon Zest, guavas, ripe plum, banana peel, almonds . Washes clean with a healthy splash of minerality. Highly recommend!

Great waiting list to jump on.

Very interesting. Bright pale yellow. Toasty and dirty too on the nose. Creamy and lovely texture. Great palate with tons of fruits. A mix of citrus and tropical as well as banana runts. Can't wait to crack ours. Moderate acidity (7/10) and medium bodied. So refreshing and love the complexity. Drink till 2022.

We learned about the Overnoy at Four Horseman too late but this was more than suffice. Great acid and some mellon and pear. Perfect compliment with summer eggplant and sun golds.

Hot damn I love this wine. Light and earthy! Best when slightly chilled. Thank you @Mike Lee!

Tasted over 3 occasions via Coravin at home...air is a friend to this wine.

The best from the US since I had some older Chappellet (VV and regular) way back say 12-14 years ago.
