Just had two (one was Not enough) glasses of the 2010 Blend 23 at a restaurant in Dana Point and have been on a mission to find more. It was subtle and sophisticated, and creamy and dry and fruity and complex. As a chardonnay and viognier fan, this is my new favorite. And now it's not available!

Yes, I admit, it was late in the day, and one of my last stops on my biking tour of Calistoga. Anything cold would have tasted great. I only bought a few bottles to have my tasting fee waived, put it on my wine rack and forgot about it. As the temperature and humidity in Tennessee have both reached in humane levels, I have gravitated toward my white wine stash. I was blown away tonight. Why wasn't this m first stop? I neeeeeed more.
