May 9, 2016 - This wine was singing. Lighter body and so so smooth. Awesome.
May 6, 2016 - Lovely Chard with similar tasting notes to previous bottle, with perhaps more lively acidity than I remember.
May 4, 2016 - As fantastic as this was on release, I have to agree with some of the recent tasting notes by others that the oak is dominating, and I'm not sure it will get absorbed. Acidity is pretty good. This may not really have anywhere to go, and I would opt to drink these sooner rather than later. Not a bad wine, but just too dominated by the oak (though I believe only about 25% new was used).
May 3, 2016 - Very nice, though this bottle was similar to my last and I think it's time to start drinking these.
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 8, 2016 - Absolutely spectacular chard.
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.
February 17, 2016 - Flawed
