    April 20, 2014 - This is a very fruit forward, creamy, buttery, and lush Chardonnay. I found this to be one-dimensional, with no minerality and more importantly no acid of which to speak. Unmistakably New World, which isn't a bad thing unless it isn't your cup of tea, as is the case with me. I like Failla's reds (for the most part) but have never been able to get into their whites and this is no exception. Pleasant enough to drink but I wouldn't seek it out. Rated 0 on a scale of -1 to 3.
