    April 11, 2016 - Beautiful- just like the Giants winning 3 out of 4 from the Dodgers and the Warriors crushing San Antonio in San Antonio! Life is great!

    March 13, 2016 - Leo's Blind Tasting Group - March '16 edition (Gil's): Wasn't a fan of this a few years ago, and I'm still not a fan now. Served blind this screamed California Chardonnay with a ripe citrus fruit profile (riper than the '07 in the same flight which had me guessing Burgundy), intense oaky and vanilla notes around the fruit, and lighter herbal accents. Good enough acidity, but I can't get past the oaky imprint here.

    March 5, 2016 - Not quite at level as some other vintages, though still very good. Color more evolved than I expected. I do think this vintage will be shorter-lived than others too and would say to drink up.

    February 29, 2016 - Wonderful nose, to me it was almost melon like. Wonderful chardonnay that everyone loved.
