    December 22, 2014 - Nice Chardonnay. Beautiful, rich tropical fruits and butter. Just a little too much oak - I will wait a year for my last bottle. 91 points.

    November 22, 2014 - Very nice California chardonnay. Bright yellow, long finish, creamy but not too much butter.

    October 5, 2014 - Dark yellow. Golden. Very ripe fruits, mango, banana, tropical, luscious, very delicious. Oak was well integrated. Rich in the mouth. Unctuous. I love this and I usually do not like CA chardonnay.

    September 20, 2014 - Saturday wines: Rich and ripe, but the fruit is fairly pure and there is a nice base of acidity, though the wood sticks out a little on the finish.
