    August 10, 2014 - very intensive more chardy bardy than Burgundy, nuts, honey, vanilla, acidity lack, drink it now plus 3 years

    October 6, 2012 - Very typical mid tier central coast chardonnay, and in my opinion one of the better ones in this price range. Tropical fruit nose, rich mid palate. Typical vanilla oak tannins on the finish, but not too overdone. A bit of heat on the finish. Best with rich and flavorful somewhat spicy foods to counter the intense simple flavors of the wine. Went well with cummin coated roast pork with cabbage and mustard.

    July 13, 2012 - Nose of green apple, honeysuckle, butterscotch, citrus and toasted oak. Apple, tropical fruit, and mild oaky tannins lead to a long finish. A very well made Cali chard, with wonderful fruit and good acidic balance. Paired with shrimp scampi.

    March 9, 2012 - Beautiful nose with notes of green apple, pear, toasted oak, citrus, spice, and toasted coconut. Apple, tropical fruit, citrus and oaky tannins on the mid-palate; leading to a long buttery finish. Paired with baked potato soup.
