 Tasted by wineberg on 1/4/2013 & rated 92 points: 1st Wine Night 2013: Started around 45F, and followed over 6 hours.

Early on I caught pineapple, vanilla, truffle, and as this warmed up it's shown other flavors. One of the guests commented "Funkenbutter" :) A buttery nuttiness to it as it warms, almond, hazelnut? Does have an earthy funk to it...very nice.

Really enjoyed this...a very nice bottle that has plenty of life left, but drinking well now. (1571 views)
 Tasted by royalscam on 4/25/2012 & rated 93 points: This is yet another fantastic Chardonnay from CB. Strong, straw color with aromas of minimal oak, minerals and assorted citrus type fruits, pineapple standing out; great mouthfeel with excellent balance and penetrating fruits; finishes for several seconds. An absolute beauty, it did well in the bottle about one week out revealing its superb flavors and improving its balance! (1530 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
