Top Notes For
Jay Kline

Popped and poured; enjoyed over the course of several hours. The 2021 "Amador County" pours a slightly hazy, pale straw color with medium viscosity. On the nose the wine is developing with notes of lemons, chamomile, lanolin, lime blossom, and ferrous minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium++ acid. Confirming the notes on the nose. The finish is long and loaded with minerals. Balanced and ever so fresh. This was a killer accompaniment with our Friendsgiving lunch in the office and worked well with turkey. Drinking now through 2031. Only two 500L puncheons produced.

Wow! Explosion of tart lemon curd. Bright, zippy, alive. Highest props for not raising the price on these gems. True bargains….Tegan is an absolute genius and my only regret is not getting large enough allocation..,
