2009 vintage. Clean, mineralesque, pineapple guava nose. Medium body. Spicy, zippy complementary oak frames some nearly perfect acidity. Fantastic and balanced.

Another great Weekly Wine Committee in the books, this time hosted by Dan. Format stayed the same (1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine) and everything is guessed blind. As I mentioned previously, I guessed all 3 whites as chardonnays (and they were), but I didn't guess west coast here. More mineral driven than the first two, though it got better after some air time. White flowers, honey, stone fruit.

Minerality & acidity overwhelm this wine when it's first opened. A hour + decanting shows a much different wine. A little honeysuckle, fig, straw, melon ... a bit of oak. Wipes your palate clean with crisp acidity.

2009. I'm ok with this. Rich. Bold. Full expression of the varietal plus treatment with plenty of french oak and malo. I want to see the development.
