    January 5, 2015 - I like this wine a lot and it has been a consistent performer. I agree with some previous notes that this is a good balance of everything without any one trait overwhelming the others. I will be curious how this holds up to some bottle age.

    October 28, 2014 - Wonderful bottle of wine! Light nose with a lovely, lingering finish. Great balance of acid, fruit and body, with none overwhelming the other. Can be enjoyed with food or as a cocktail. One of my favorite Cali chards.

    October 18, 2014 - Color dark straw, nose of pear, apricots, peach, honey suckle. Palate green apple, acidic, crisp, very good finish improved time.

    July 28, 2014 - Very nice chardon. Had a hint of melon, oak, lime zest. Would buy again :)
