    April 1, 2017 - Golden yellow. Citrus notes on the bouquet. Medium bodied, vibrant, spicy and tart. Alcohol is contained for the most part. Could use mote malolactic fermentation or aging.

    November 13, 2015 - PnP; i've been drinking a lot of leaner Chards lately and was afraid this would be too heavy and flabby for me. It ended up being a pretty enjoyable wine, with enough acidity to pair well with dinner. Some pear, stone fruit, vanilla and slight oak, and good enough acidity to support a scallop risotto dinner. But for the money, I would look to Mt. Eden or Ramey instead.

    April 1, 2015 - Tropical fruit & apple on the nose. Sweet fruit & round mouthfeel is the initial impression. Nicely balanced though the finish was just a bit short.
    The wine showed best in 2013. It was smooth & crisp without being acidic. Lots of flavor (apple, pineapple and a bit pof butterscotch) with a moderate long finish. [92] then, [90] now.

    March 28, 2015 - Golden straw in color. A more typical California Chardonnay for me. The acidity was there but so were the oak and malo influences. Not great QPR and style for me even though I am a huge ME fan.
