    February 28, 2016 - Monthly Tasting Group: CDP's and Southern Rhones (Porter Creek, Mpls, MN): Light-medium gold color. Drank 1 glass over 30 minutes. this was lovely and round with butterscotch, melon, tropical fruit on the nose. The palate is full bodied, lemon, velvety, minerals and stone, pineapple. Big, though not over the top. 91+pts.

    December 26, 2015 - Served 2nd in the lineup of 3 NW Chards this showed right in the middle, fairly neutral apple pear and lemon notes, doesn't scream NW but obviously not Burgundy, shows nice restraint, good acid though I wouldn't expect this to be long lived- enjoy now; very nice.

    December 19, 2015 - Pulled as part of a cellar cleaning. Drinking well now. Aromatic on the nose. Odd as it sounds, the nose reminds me a bit of a V. Girardin GC from years ago - fruity with unapologetic oak. On the palate, that oak combines with fruit to yield a distinctly tropical character, with a sense of pineapple, particularly early on. With air, this morphs into a well balanced California chardonnay, though that air brings out a bit of tannic pucker on the finish. Full throttle to be sure, but not overbearing. Specifically, does not have overdone, pucker-inducing malo. A bright acidic cut keeps this one from bogging down. One of the better California chardonnays I've had in awhile.

    October 8, 2015 - Restrained nose with yellow orchard fruits and hints of oak. The palate is more oaky in s pineapple sort of way. A bit of flint. Long and interesting.
