Good weight and inviting buttery nose. The fall out is on the palate when oak and alcohol overwear the fruit. Still very good wine.

Very nice Napa chard. There's plenty of creamy lemon custard, some caramel, subtle spiceness, decent acidity, some green apple and a medium finish. Fairly well balanced, with nice mouthfeel. Have had the '06 and '09 in the past and seem to remember those vintages having a bit more acidity.

The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are slow. It smells like grapefruit. The body is light/medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity. Has the hint of oak that I like in a traditional California Chardonnay

Always a perennial restaurant wine list favorite made in the "bigger" CA style: apple butter, tart citrus, and some faint tropical fruit. Still a touch of oak on the mix, but manageable. Medium acidity and a decent finish. Good seafood wine.

Wow. This is a huge Chardonnay. It has aged well and does have some oxidation. The front palette still displays freshness but the incredibly long finish brings out some of the oxidization and carmel notes. It is close to dessert like in weight. The complexity and range of flavors is amazing - highly suggest drinking over a couple of hours to see how the wine evolves. Clearly this is not for everyone but it is one of the most interesting examples of aged California Chard I've ever had (IMO better than Ridge and Kistler). I would drink now as there is still ample freshness to balance the oxidization.

We didn't take good notes when tasting so going from memory. Before opening we thought this wine was it's end but were pleasantly surprised how good it was. We have heard that some of the newer vintages are better so we will have to check those out.

Carmel cherry nose. Deep rich darkness in color. Slight cocoa. Cherry Carmel candy. Vanilla. Drinking perfectly. Very slight tannins give it a hint of spice or green pepper. Might have been better earlier with more fruit but yet this is still spectacular. If you got it, you could hold it as it goes through teenager wine years. We enjoyed it! Bittersweet chocolate.

Just wonderful. Medium gold color. Pears, butter, and vanilla. Extremely rich, with a nice tingle of acidity on its long finish. Drinking beautifully right now. Wish I had more.

Similar to previous bottle in terms of flavors but this bottle came across very plump and soft on the palate this time. I'm not sure if the wine is already fading fast or the structure felt soft due to being drank after a bigger cab.

Largest gap ever between tasting notes (2006-2015)? Nothing wrong with this. Obvious chocolate notes coming through the grape juice (and I can't usually discern such subtleties), but still balance and not grossly over the hill. But don't wait (if you have a bottle and were waiting for someone to tell you it's OK to drink).

Medium gold color. Rich, buttery wine with corn and butterscotch. Drank at a lobster boil and this still paired well but the fruit has definitely faded from my previous bottles. It was better two or three years ago but everyone that drank it was still impressed by the texture and mouth feel.

Red purple. This bottle showed fairly one dimensional favors with red and blue fruit, a bit of tobacco, and smooth tannins.

Remarkable balance between powerful acidity and fruit concentration. A very much alive wine, evolving with air. Great texture and long finish.

Lots of sweet cherries and some wood smoke and spices in the nose; fruity and smooth on the palate, with black cherries and Asian spices, yet missing some desirable complexity; medium-long finish; overall, rather enjoyable when paired with grilled steak, so 88-89 points.

Last bottle, and am I sorry. Gave it very little decanting. Tannins are perfectly integrated - very smooth, lively moth feel. Red fruit, but not bright, more like slightly desiccated and concentrated. This was a joy to drink! I guess it's on to the 2005s.

w whole wheat casarecce in a ragu of heirloom tomatoes, wood-grilled bluefish, oil-cured olives marinated in red pepper flakes, black walnuts, and Sorrento lemon rind and juice.

Obviously, I sought a big wine to match those tastes, and this fit the bill. More nuanced than on release (when it was a hedonistic fruit bomb), yet still deep body and good fruit. Years of life ahead.

One hour later -- the oak and tannins mentioned in other notes are beginning to take center stage.

Purchased at Bonefish Grill for dinner. Big nose and tannins to match on opening. The tannins quickly subsided and nice, medium bodied flavors came to the front. The nose gradually receded. Nice wine for dinner.

My 3rd bottle that continues to taste relatively young and gets much smoother with 1-2 hours of air. Classic buttery candy with good acidity. Should get better with a year or two.

The label(Newtonian) was a bit different on this bottle that was bought from Germany. Upon popping the cork broke into 2 pieces; the lower piece being totally soaked and stained. Decanted for 1/2 hour. On the nose some dark cassis toned fruit, tobacco and manure. On the palate it was still kicking nicely, delivering subtle dark fruit with beautiful tertiary flavors like barnyard and hints of tobacco. Almost resolved tannins. Smooth and complex. This wine has aged gracefully and seems to be in a perfect spot right now. What a great buy for 35€ !
