Added Sep 21, 2009 at 11:10amA delightfully simple refresher with a good fizz to it. Paired well with a watermelon/tomato soup due to the crisp acidity and simple fruit profiles (apples/pears).

Added Feb 9, 2008 at 1:38pmI enjoyed this wine while eating a Chicken dish with an overpowering citrus sauce that destroys most wines that are paired with it. The sauce is almost like a syrup. Nevertheless, the Testament didn't back down an inch. Its powerful fruit didn't dominate one way or the other, but wasn't killed by the high sugar sauce. The sauce was toned down by the deep black and brown spices in the Testament the long finish kept me enjoying it long after I set the glass down. A work of art.

Added Jul 16, 2008 at 3:08amDelicious. This wine proves that the new world, especially California, can produce complex, subtle, Old World quality whites. Winemaker Cecile Lemerle-Derbes, Champagne raised, presents a wine drinking very well at 5 years, emulating Mersault qualities: smokey, creamy, with a finish that goes on and on. It is reminiscent of homemade apple pie filling with the good structure of baked apple and cinnamon, resting on faint citrus, mostly lemon. In a few years, it will be speaking bacon straight out. Now, however, there is plenty of flinty minerality that makes you think of young Chablis. An absolute delight to drink, challenging and engaging at every sip.

Added Jul 28, 2008 at 3:03pmWhile 98 wasn't so good to California cab, BV exceeded expectation and 10 years later this wine is drinking deliciously. The flavors are distinctly California Cabernet, but focused, clearly defined against and within each other, delivered gently to the nose and the palette. The finish seems infinite and teases the tongue with chocolatey, coffee hints and makes you come back to see if there is yet another secret unraveled in the glass.
