    July 9, 2015 - Nice wine, marked by oak and with a fat mouth. I like a bit more verticality in my whites. It was fun to share it with friends who, like me, are not used to Californian Chardonnay.

    April 11, 2015 - Very nice Sonoma Chard, but no formal notes taken (thus no score). Second bottle to be finished in a line of ~15

    September 4, 2014 - Evergreen and herby and really mineral across the palate. Lots of drive and energy. Rather in a good place. Rather darn long and expressive. Settled down into itself. Not nearly as tart and nervy (although that is still all there) and delicious. That's a wine.

    May 18, 2014 - Steely minerality. Light on oak. Very chablisienne. Great medium bodied CA chard. Probably better in a year. I wish it wasn't $65.

    February 16, 2014 - Still young, but really enjoyed the bottle. I felt like this was a better value than some of the Hirsch pinots. Not too much oak, well balanced acidity.
