    August 1, 2016 - Light golden green color. Drinking perfect right now. Drinking my 1st of a case. Happy I decided to try now. 10 minutes in and opening up.
    Hazelnut nose. Love this!

    December 27, 2015 - One of two chardonnays served at our wine tasting party- other was a Napa chardonnay from Alpha Omega (2009). The contrast in styles between the two wines was striking. The Martinelli was a much bigger wine, the tropical fruit was the primarily flavor profile. Our friends at the party preferred the Martinelli, largely based upon its stronger fruit profile.

    July 24, 2014 - Lovely wine. Well balanced with nice fruit and just the right touch of oak.

    March 15, 2014 - Longtime fan of Martinelli Chardonnay, and this one doesn't disappoint. It tends to favor the butterscotch/oak side of things, but not to the point of annoyance. Very full bodied, with a nice acidic lift at the back end, though there is a pronounced bit of heat, too. Long length...a serious wine.
