Bottle had been open for several days, but was perfectly preserved with minimal oxygen. There is sweet fruit and balanced acidity but overall this is a simple fruit driven Pinot without much complexity or concentration.

Nicely framed chardonnay with lemon curd on the nose and palate. The acidity has softened some in the 2.5yrs since my last bottle, giving this a slightly rounder mouthfeel. Long steely finish. Very good and still quite lithe on the palate. Pale gold color.

This is drinking beautifully tonight. My first night relaxing after a week and a half long visit from the kids, it is nice to sit and relax with this superb wine. Crisp with citrus and a slight creamy coating on the palate. Heating up some leftover almond crusted chicken that we will have on an arugula salad with sliced peaches. The wine should do quite well at the dinner table.

Wow, oozes flavor from every pore, with rich yellow stone fruits, good acidity, a long, lasting finish, with nice hints of stony minerality. Not a trace of oak, or anything overripe, just brilliantly flavorful and mouthwateringly good.

Consistent with previous note. Lean and quite middle of the road. Lemon and slight oak. There isn't a lot to get excited about here, but it isn't bad either.

Worldwide Chards (Edina Country Club): Nice showing with pineapple, minerals, spice and subtle oak. Very pleasant and not over the top. Drink now.

Worldwide World Class Chards (Edina, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1 glass over 40 minutes. I have to admit that I am baffled by the high scores for this wine. I don't get it. to me it drinks like an entry level Chablis, nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either. Slight toast on the nose, light oak, subtle lemon; thinner on the mid palate, decent minerality, very subtle, light body, flat. 88-89pts.

Red berry, spice with vanilla on the nose, similar palate that's remarkably fresh if a touch on the riper side, hint of cola on the finish

Improved from the last bottle. Starting to come out of its shell. Will probably hold the next bottle for a couple years at least.

Yellow color; decanted half an hour. Pear, stone, quince and honeysuckle notes. Good weight on the palate with flavors of pear and apple with a minerally finish. Nice underlying acidity.

Really intense nose with lemons, minerals, sea shore component, palate is quite persistent with terrific acidity and robust feel, finishes nicely, this needs about an hour or so of a decant and no colder than cellar temp

Floral nose. Flavors of cranberry, tart raspberry, and orange zest. Very reserved in taste and did not change Mich in day 2. Enjoyable wine, not fruit forward.

Opened, not decanted. Somewhat shy but very pleasing aromas of citrus, rose petal, and red fruits. The palate shows flavors of bright red cherries and strawberries followed by hints of orange peel and a mineral note. The flavors are supported by fresh, bracing acidity, complimentary tannins, and a lingering finish. Delicious. Cellar or lengthy decant at this point.

My score May be a little tainted as I had this after a 2012 Bevan Ritchie, which is our favorite Chardonnay right now. Tasted too lemony, lime and finished a little bitter. Not my kind of Chardonnay

Earthy and delicious. Drinking nice now but still has some nice tannic structure on the back end, so should continue to age well.

Very good and showcases what makes Ceritas chardonnay among my favorites in California. Lemony fruit with juicy acid, some oak detectable but the overall impression is crisp and clean. Better than the bottles of Porter Bass chard that I've had, and very close in quality to the Heintz, my favorite Ceritas bottling.

Opened after resting it for a week: Sweet nose that I get from almost all Ceritas whites. Opens with grapefruit, honey'd marmalade middle notes, and delicious gravelly acidic long finish. Really nice!

With pork tenderloin in onion/apple cream sauce and roasted green beans.
Clear medium ruby.
Lovely aromatic nose, cherry and some floral notes.
Very smooth on the palate, medium body with balanced acid, cherry and some dusty earthiness as noted by Emark. Good finish.
A lovely wine, but for the price I expected it to bring a bit more sensuality to the dance.

This had an interesting evolution in the glass. Relatively delicate, acidity was pronounced. Fruit got better after half an hour, but never achieved greatness. A very solid, nice wine, but not as good as some I've had from them.

Felt like a different wine, lots of oaky Apple, pear drop notes on the nose, palate is rich opulent with a similar profile, doesn't come across as fresh or intense as previous experiences
