    June 21, 2017 - Really nice chardonnay, we had it with sushi. The palate of apple, pear and citrus with a light touch of oak. A nice long finish.

    September 24, 2016 - This is very good but not worth the $70+ price tag ordered directly from the winery (taxes & shipping included). There are far better alternatives in the $20 range. If this were a "wow" wine I could understand the high tariff, but this is just not worth the price, and stylistically not my preference.

    July 3, 2016 - A go to bottle year after year, this is a well-balanced Chardonnay with a wonderful lemon-lime and tropical fruit profile, but balanced with good acidity and the eight punt of oak to complement the fruit flavors and bring it all together. Great pairing on the 4th with corn and lobster.
