    December 13, 2014 - Vanilla, creamy, buttery nose, super ripe yellow apple... taste is very creamy, sweet yellow apple, hint of wood tannins, hint of acidity in the finish, very modern american chardonnay!

    September 13, 2014 - Not as big as some CA Chardonnays, but seductive ripe lemon/lime and melon flavors, excellent minerality and nice sharp bite at the finish, which is long and expansive. This is a style I really love!

    June 19, 2014 - Big and buttery. A little expensive for what it is. But it's a fine Napa Chardonnay that shows loads of cream, butter, vanilla and oak. The citrus came out more the next day. Drinking well now.
