 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 6/14/2008: Shows nice oak and acidity but not quite integrate right now. Tasty at its price. Worthwhile. Now open about an hour. Much more (2027 views)
 Tasted by AllRed on 2/28/2008 & rated 90 points: Gibby's monthly tasting (Gibby's Wine Den, Geneva, IL): Production is about 2,500 cases of this Chardonnay, sourced half from estate fruit, and the other half from the Hyde vineyards. Pale yellow color. Floral qualities over mineral, grass/hay and apple tones. Has a bit of sulphur at first, blowing off to reveal flavors of mineral, steely orchard fruit and toast. (1679 views)
