 Tasted by Barry Notes on 9/8/2014 & rated 92 points: P/slightly chilled. Clear, light straw color. Big, clean, intense Chard nose. Med-Big body, rich and fruity, clean, slight touch of oat/toast. Long, clean finish. Delicious. Drink now or hold for a few years. Nothing off. $64 (399 views)
 Tasted by slmral on 1/9/2014 & rated 94 points: First Thursday Main Group - Merlots of the World: The group didn't like the oak. I didn't mind it. (622 views)
 Tasted by jazzop on 10/18/2013 & rated 90 points: This wine is way too immature to drink now. It is tight, saline, acidic, and the fruit is hidden away. I won't touch my other bottle until at least 2016. (554 views)
 Tasted by wineo11 on 8/30/2013 & rated 94 points: One of the best Chardonnays I have ever had. Great bouquet. Palate opens with as a nice restrained buttery fresh chard and has a long finish that ends with a crisp mineral taste to clear any trace of oak/butter out. Not a Chardonnay fan but I would drink this any time. (613 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.
