February 17, 2013 - Seems like P&H Chard is highly variable from bottle to bottle. It is always at least good, but I've had better. Wondering if getting the temp and O2 right on this makes a big difference. Overall, good balance of citrus and mineral.

December 26, 2012 - I've had a tough time with CA Chardonnay *but* this one pleased with its clean, voluptuous lemony characteristics on the nose and palate. Had a feeling I'd like it thanks to positive impressions of their Pinots. Great producer.

December 8, 2012 - Patz & Hall makes clean Chardonnays that pair extraordinarily well with food and last night at Posto was no exception. The wine possessed muted pineapple and quince but finishes with red apple. Moderate acidity keeps his one really fresh on the palate but doesn't overwhelm. Cheers!

October 31, 2012 - Decent sipper, but simple, with caramel, baked apple and pear flavors, and some lemon oil around the edges. Little fizzy up front; finish is short and slightly acrid. Better than a sharp stick in the eye, but there are better AVA chards for the money in this vintage. Ramey comes to mind as a comparable price/production alternative.
For what it's worth, feels like P&H's Pinots have been significantly outperforming their Chardonnays for the past few years.
