July 26, 2015 - Medium gold color. PNP, drank 2 glasses with dinner over an hour. I seem to forget just how good this in. Been a bit, but this always impresses me. Full bodied and rich in flavor, round, lemon curd, honey, moderate oak, toast, apple, just a bit of edge to the mineral flavors on the finish.

August 6, 2014 - Pleasing Burgundian style Chardonnay, medium body with great acidity and overall polish. Notes of honeysuckle laced with grapefruit. Paired well with grilled swordfish with lemon olive oil sauce.

May 11, 2014 - Birthday and Mother's Day wines; 5/10/2014-5/11/2014 (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Medium gold color. PNP, drank 1+ glass over an hour. Nose starts with tropical fruit, lemon, apple, mild oak, and minerals. The palate delivers tropical fruit, apple, lemon, lemon oil, some oak, good acidity, quite crisp and clean with good minerality and a medium plus finish. Very solid wine.

March 9, 2014 - First bottle corked. Second features classic Cali Chard with lemon, apple, spice and oak. Medium finish and complex. A good value when you consider this costs only about $24 on sale.

August 31, 2013 - Very nice Chardonnay with mild structure and complexity. Not too much tropical pineapple and a saline thread on the lightly mineral palate made this an excellent food wine. It place third in a tasting of 12 Chardonnays, beating a Krongard and losing out to a Paul Hobbs RRV and a grand cru Chablis.
