    September 18, 2015 - Popped and poured and was an obvious New World Chardonnay from the first whiff. Has great acid and the oak is defiantly in check, but still the ripeness of the fruit makes it obvious what it is. Checks in at 14.8% Alcohol, but with the large fruit profile balances out nicely. Not my style of wine, but very good for what it is. If you are looking for a fruit forward, California Chardonnay, this is a great choice.

    May 25, 2015 - Buttery and smooth. Everyone always loves this wine. The group rating was 92. For me personally there was some astringency on the finish that would lower my rating to 90. Still a really nice wine.

    May 23, 2015 - Bit oakier than what I like, but bright full bodied and deliciously buttery.

    April 4, 2015 - Everyone loved it. Very full bodied, luscious/creamy, but fresh. Really nice white.
