    November 27, 2014 - A beautiful, aged California chardonnay. Drinking wonderfully, but it mistime to drink up.

    November 18, 2014 - This was the best bottle of this wine I have had of this in a while. A couple of the recent bottles were over the hill or had lost some of their verve but this one was like a stunning old corton Charlemagne. Great mineral definition with fruit flavors of tangerine, nectarines and flowers. Very fully bodied and long finish.
