Burgundy night. Started off with a nice champagne followed by a Cali roussanne to calibrate the palates.

Buttery and rubbery at the same time. Probably slightly past its prime? Strong front palate of toasted butter and wax. Mid palate and finish fade to a faint almond note.

I didn't expect much from this but I must admit I loved the bright acidity and lemongrass finish cool wine for sure!

Wow, this is crazy, what a wine, 100% So. Cal. Roussane, very, very good; surprisingly CA had a decent vintage for '08. Wine of the weekend, Sashi Moorman is awesome.

Exceptional CA Roussanne - taut acidity bolsters the honeyed fruit, and it's mouthful and waxy without being fat or flabby. Killer with seared scallops and corn salad.

A lovely bottle. If you take your time, it blossoms into something magical halfway through. Move from mineral and acid to something smooth and almost creamy. Fantastic.

A waxy Ballard canyon delight; the core is all mineral and acid.
