Sonoma County Chardonnay 2020

Lioco Chardonnay is MVP level QPR. This is dynamic, textured, layered, and complex in a tax bracket where Chardonnay usually sucks.

The aromas are subtle and steely lemon, smelling fresh as spa water. Flavors of jasmine and blanched bitter almond and yellow apple. Where there's zero oak, there's texture and acid.

I've always liked this wine but this year seems particularly good.

Lolonis Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Purchased on our honeymoon! Pale yellow with green hues in the color, with a pronounced nose of wet stone, fresh cut yellow apple and pear with subtle notes of honeysuckle, toasted brioche and vanilla. The palate has champagne like qualities, with golden stone fruits, a pronounced acidity, and a slightly “zesty” feeling on the tongue, with a mineral driven finish and notes of yeast/bread throughout. Good sav blanc, great memories. — 2 months ago

Estero Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

Lemon and floral aromas, tart lemon acidity, creamy yellow apple, tons of crushed gravel minerality that lingers on and on, light on the palate but with texture that gives it a nice mouthfeel. The kind of chardonnay I want to drink. #underthecellar — 2 days ago
