Community Tasting Notes (average 93 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by CelebrateLife! on 11/28/2013 & rated 94 points: Beautiful nose, green apples with a hint of oak, great acidity, great complexity wonderful wine. My current favorite California chard. And I'm a red wine guy (1104 views)
 Tasted by Biggsy on 2/14/2013 & rated 93 points: From Sandhi's lowest yielding vineyard, the steepest northern slopes only making 70 cases in 2010. More expressive nose than the Sanford & Benedict, quite powerful with a banana custard character. Much more exotic than the other two chardonnays with ripe pineapple and mango flavour. Very pure with cutting acidity and the same nice saline character that appeared on the Sanford & Benedict. My WOTN. (1546 views)

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.
