February 24, 2014 - Beautifully balanced with good structure. Oak no longer stands out. Nice peach, apple and melon flavors and some nice minerality. Perfect time to enjoy. 91 points1 person found this helpful Comment

July 10, 2013 - A nice Chardonnay; all bottles tasted were consistently good; nothing outstanding but a nice blend of acidity and oak, neither overwhelming the other. A little too expensive for the delivery but will likely try again.

July 3, 2013 - With some more aging, this wine has gained complexity with its crisp apple notes along with rich buttery taste...its an interesting blend of flavors that makes this Chardonnay quite good. Recommend letting this wine get to room temperature to fully enjoy all its flavors.
