    February 10, 2017 - Man I love these wines. It pours a very dark burnt caramel and has a flavor profile that fits with the coloring. Very sweet but with age there's a bit more mellowing of how in your face these can be. Still - lots of caramelized apricot. Very yummy.

    February 4, 2017 - Q1 2017 Tasting - Starts with the Letter (The Apt): A wonderful way to end the evening. It was delicious. Poured a very dark almost burnt caramel color which fit with the flavor profile. Lots of those toasty, almost nutty, and then great beautiful caramel. Still decent acidity. A bit intense as these wines always are, but just lovely too.

    January 18, 2017 - Never seen a Chardonnay this dark. Very brown profile with a hint of crimson. Sweet melons, honey dew, thick, viscous, super long finish. Literally feels like drinking honey from a jar. Probably not the first thing I would grab but can appreciate the style. Very well balanced with just a hint of acid.

    December 9, 2016 - Wow is this wonderful and delicious. It's super unctuous and orange and honey and so much more. Really enjoyed it.

    August 26, 2016 - Awesome. So much ripe nectarine, orange marmalade, mango, honey and brown sugar packed in here with just enough acidic push to stretch it into endlessness on the finish. A huge hit with the company present and it's great to hear the reaction to telling someone it's Chardonnay. The color is a beautiful golden bronze with flashes of amber at the edge. I'm sure this could last much longer and develop further complexity, but it seems to have no juvenile traits that warrant further rest, either. So delicious. 5+12+18+9= 94
