    July 30, 2014 - This wine is rocking; it has a few more years in it. Light gold color, modest oaky/buttery notes with solid green fruit flavors, hints of caramel, and mild acidity.

    January 7, 2014 - This one surprised the hell out of me. I thought well beyond its expiration date, but this bottle is really drinking well. Plenty of oak and butter, but a core of still very crisp, tart fruit that is just electric. Much better now than it was early in its life (for my taste).

    November 23, 2012 - Perhaps past it's prime, but this was dull, fruitless, inoffensive and unexciting

    November 4, 2012 - OK for older Cali chard, made in the big extracted style (not my fav), but well made, nose was very nice and palate was rich, caramelized fruit with the oak still obvious, thick mouthfeel, nothing brite about this but again pleasing, def'ly could taste the age on this one even though only 6 years old

    October 28, 2012 - Rich creamy Chard with big viscous mouthfeel and just the right amount of Oak.
