    June 18, 2013 - Appearance very light in color, almost clear. Nose has hints of citrus and oak. Very acidic on the palate with hints of vanilla, oak, and citrus. A bit past it's prime, but tasty if the acidity wasn't too strong.

    January 23, 2010 - Very tarte, acidic, citrus wine. Hint of oak. Finish of citrus and butter. I had with cheesie food. I think it would be much better with a meaty white fish or shellfish. Yes...scallops or lobster.

    July 24, 2008 - Very light in color - almost clear. Felt it tasted like a cross between a sauvignon blanc and a dry riesling. Lots of citrus, high acidity, and effervescence on the finish.

    May 4, 2008 - Really a fine Chardonnay. Great structure, the slightest oak, crisp and buttery.
