 Tasted by Ewhite30 on 3/1/2013 & rated 91 points: Really nice wine - had weight without feeling too heavy and no one flavor was overpowering. Sweet and approachable nose with pear and tropical fruit notes. The acidity hits right up front with sweet pineapple notes balanced against caramel, biscuit and spicy ginger. Drinking really well right now. (2553 views)

 Tasted by bmurph29 on 11/6/2011 & rated 93 points: Sad this was my only bottle. Shared it with friends at a tasting and it was the unanimous winner. (4267 views)
 Tasted by Rich S on 9/4/2011 & rated 92 points: Light yellow color. Killer nose right off the bat with buttered apple, tropical fruit, vanilla, and toast. More of the same on the palate with a lovely combination of tropical and citrus fruit and oak flavors all working together. Creamy mouthfeel, long finish. This is excellent California chardonnay and was a perfect pairing with lobsters and drawn butter. (3441 views)

Nose: Wow, wonderful aromas of Pear, pineapple, green apple and citrus

palate; Balanced flavors of vanilla, peer and pineapple. Acidity is present in the middle palate and the wine finish with a subtle creamy finish. I did not picked up oak on the palate like others did.
