    June 27, 2017 - Impressive acid and judicious oak, especially by Shafer standards, make this lively and quite interesting. In a blind flight it might have fooled me for hot vintage Burgundy, Cru Macon in particular. It should last for several more years, and perhaps improve marginally.

    February 7, 2015 - Tons of honeysuckle, lemon zest and a little butter. Really good Chardonnay.

    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
