    Winemaker's Notes:

    #93 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    Pale, bright gold. Gentle, yet powerful nose simply oozes with class. Notes of citrus, lime and honey with some toasty nuts and rich vanilla. Well weighted mouth with layers of flavor along the lines suggested by the nose. Lime and honey tend to show more with some time in the mouth. Smooth, effortless flow across the palate. Still has a fresh, lively acidity that highlights the flavors. Super drink now yet has all the potential to develop over the next two to three years. Or more!

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Reserve Chenin Blanc (the renamed Chenin Blanc) has a light golden hue. The nose is muted at first but opens up to offer honeysuckle and candied orange peel aromas. The palate is very pure and well balanced with good acidity, apricot, Clementine and a touch of lime zest that leads to a very poised finish. This is a consummate Chenin Blanc, although I suspect that the 2010 will be even better. Drink now-2017.

    Ripe and concentrated, with brioche and toasted hazelnut notes leading the way for now, while the core of fig, quince and ginger waits in reserve. Pure and long, with the quince echoing on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 150 cases imported.

    Full yellow-gold color. Wild aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle, peppermint and clove oil. Very rich, exotic and spicy, with superb chewy depth of flavor. Already showy and sexy but a bit more time in bottle will bring more complexity and refinement. Finishes with impressive length. This is fermented with wild yeasts and the owners play baroque music in the vines 24 hours a day.
