    February 20, 2016 - Creamy, showing an amber-yellow, the word bouquet comes to mind to describe the array of flavors, aging gracefully and seems like it can go a while, this is a very very good Chardonnay

    January 23, 2016 - On a snowy day in Princeton, opened while making a cassoulet for the evening...Its been a few years since I have had this. Last bottle from this vintage.

    Medium gold color.Nose of orchard fruits, fig and vanilla. Palate of citrus, pears, lemon curd, mango, white flowers. Oak well integrated on mid and back palate. Creamy texture, medium/long finish.

    Wine is well into its secondary phase, very good but will not improve much from here. Would drink over next 2-3 years

    July 25, 2015 - Pale gold. Yes I just had this the day before, but this was for a tasting group. Lovely mix a flowers, pear and mango. Mouth was smooth, mouthcoating with vanillins, pear, mango in cream. Wonderful and my last bottle.

    July 21, 2015 - Light yellow color with a youthful greenish tint. Aromas of vanilla, apple and fig. Full-bodied with flavors of fig paste, orchard frut and tropical fruit. The oak is balanced by the abundant fruit. Long finish. I came back to this toward the end of the evening- the oak has faded further and notes of lemon oil, white peach and pear are evident. Absolutely terrific. 96+ pts.
