    March 31, 2013 - nose; smoke, clover honey, lemon butter, and pineapple.
    palate; caramel, peaches, heavy cream, and vanilla.
    high acidity.
    low oak influence.
    45 plus second finish.
    the best California chardonnay i've had in some time.

    February 10, 2013 - Much different from my notes a year ago. Ultrarich and concentrated, with peach and apricot flavors. Viscous mouthfeel, lingering finish.
