    July 2, 2014 - This wine went down fast with sushi. We loved it.

    March 3, 2013 - Blind Food and Wine Pairing Dinner: (Peter & Sandra's): Blind dinner Anita: Darker gold; creamy, melon, roasted nuts, vanilla, somewhat over extracted and oaky, but beautiful weighty mouthfeel. Too much for the more minimalist apple/bacon salad.

    December 5, 2011 - Brassy at first, but after about an hour, developed into a really well integrated, complex Chardonnay that even wowed a non-Chardonnay drinker in our group.

    June 3, 2011 - Definitely biased after finishing one bottle this week. So when guests arrived we had another, which all commented on how enjoyable it was. So one more point in the equation.

    March 2, 2011 - Still a nice refreshing Chardonnay
