The trifecta. An orange, earthquake survivor and freaking delicious wine. Took a bottle for the road.

Shrooms, some minerals, hangs on the palate. Not overwhelming, goes with everything. Happy Easter . Happy Passover.

Classic orangish yellow color. Much more refined and tame than other vintages I've had. Still really good, but lacked the boldness and bite of other vintages.

Fleshy texture like a ripe orange melon - flavor of melon and apple with some oxidation. 4 years in, I think we opened it too soon!

Gold color, orange blossom, apricot, white flower, and oxidized qualities in nose, more apricot, green apple, some pear, and high acidity in palate, clean, silky texture, long finish, 11 percent alcohol. Interesting. Innovative, perfect Monday night orange wine.

Totally awesome but not for everyone. Massive wet river stone minerality and dried tropical fruits. 2013 was the Napa earthquake tossing and apparently upped the oxidation. A beautiful deep deep gold color.

Another splendid example of a new world orange wine with old world sensibilities and expression
