Chris and Alesia   Cappon/ March 2012

I was surprised when my friend Martha Carpenter, wife of Pasando Tiempo Vintner, Chris Carpenter presented me with not 1, but 3 bottles - one of each of their first vintage of each of the varietals. Upon uncorking the Chardonnay at room temp, I thought the better of it and placed it in the fridge uncorked for about 20 or 30 minutes. My guest and I loved the bottle and the equisite dry mouth feel. Before uncorking bottle #2 a couple weeks later, this one the Malvasia Bianca, I gently enrobed it in a fresh blanket of ice for an hour and remembered Martha's tasting notes it should have fresh pear pineapple. Just as she said it was a high note of pear and pineapple, nice and dry on the tongue
but bright and crisp fruitiness. I have to admit, I have been hoarding my bottles and haven't yet dared open the final of the 3 bottles. I have no doubt it is destined to be my favorite - the red - a luscious blend Martha says will please for sure. I'm looking forward not only to that bottle, but the nuances some age will give to the first vintage of these three and future bottlings.
Spend a little time enjoying them my friends.
