    May 11, 2014 - A pleasant, light chardonnay. Good acidity, a mineral aspect, not strong fruit, though its overall effect is "fruity"--just of a light bodied nature.

    January 27, 2014 - Always great. Big fruit but balancing amount of oak. Definitely not your french cousin's chardonnay.

    December 5, 2013 - Pale lemon color. Medium intensity nose with notes of lemon, white peach, green apple, honeysuckle, and bread dough. Medium plus body with a flavor profile which mirrors the nose, plus a hint of yoghurt. Nice, slightly oily mouthfeel which is balanced by nice, mouthwatering acidity. Long, citrus and slightly toasted bread finish. Very well balanced.

    October 31, 2013 - Beautiful spice, subtle but toasty oak and creme brûlée. Best when it warms a bit.

    August 16, 2013 - I prefer the 2009 over the 2010. The taste seems a bit stiffer on this one, though it is certainly a nice wine. The finish is a bit different though I can't quite decipher what it is. I think this will probably evolve with some more time.
