A nice bottle for brunch. 14.5% ABV! Crikey that is a lot for a white. Nice stone fruit and mineral on the nose and palate. Not too much oak, reflective of the use of majority old (3-6 years) barrels. Enjoyed with several brunch small plates: six oysters, avocado toast, beet salad, shrimp & grits, and a duck confit hash. Solid on all of them, even the duck. Much of the food was “farm-to-table, so there was some tie in but.... Like most California, just not crushing it with food.
