Tuesday night into our third week of seclusion. Trying to make the best of s bad situation and be positive about the situation we have been dealt. I have opened the 2012 L'Ecole No.41 Columbia Valley Chenin Blanc made from old vines.

On the nose the is yellow apple, bruised apple, marzipan, ginger, honeysuckle, saffron, and a little brioche.

The palate reveals honeydew melon, asian pear, mango, ripe lime, bruised apple and a good minerality.

This wine is medium bodied showing a little age still with good medium + acidity that goes right into a medium to long ripe fruit mineral laden finish. Let's all try and make the best of a bad situation and be nice to each other. Please stay safe and the best of health to each of you. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Okay. Simple and drinkable. Could easily be mistaken for a typical oaked California Chardonnay.
