rated this wine as 92/100
with the following review:
The blend of grapes was grown organically surrounded by forests. The one vineyard is influenced by protection from the cool Pacific Coast winds by the Santa Lucia Mountains.
Rich aroma of ripe honeydew, wet slate and something seductively smooth and silky likely from the 100% malolactic fermentation. Perhaps it's a beeswax characteristics from the vineyard name of Beeswax! I taste Asian pear, lemongrass and bright lemon butter with some herbs.The components are sharply layered yet smoothly integrated, its elegant. A long finish lingers of buttery citrus and minerals. Enjoyed in Sept 2017 with some baked sole topped with roasted heirloom cherry tomatoes, citrus and goat feta.

Tasted July 23rd, 2017, during the Sunday Sipper club with guest Randall Graham of Bonny Doon Vineyard. Colour yellow gold clear and brilliant. Thick medium plus legs. Aromas of ripe pear, lemon, quince. Taste, very dry, silky oily texture, long citrus rind finish, I like this wine because it is aromatic and flavourful, the wine grows on you. I ate welsh cheddar with it and paired it with a simple stir fry, jasmine rice, beef strips flavoured with sake and soy, white mushrooms and snow peas.
