    December 14, 2014 - This is in a great place right now. Big and rich, with nice interplay of citrus, tropical fruits, and a touch of vanilla from the wood. The big fruit flavors and barrel influence are cleansed by a refreshing acidity.

    July 28, 2014 - Similar to note from last year. Nice interplay of rich tropical, melon and orchard fruits with crisp acidity. Toast noted by Nanda is there too. Paired well (better than a syrah) with grilled 'porterhouse' pork chop out on the deck. Really nice.

    July 12, 2014 - Big nose of tropical fruit, honeyed apples and toast. Palate is rich with slightly-sweet fruit and well-integrated toast. Nice acidity that frames the substantial profile. This is nicely done, rich Cali chardonnay.

    July 5, 2014 - I don't remember this being so oaky. It's not buttery but definitely oaky. There is also an odd chemical note so maybe this was off.
