  • I've seen the notes over time regarding oxidation and I believe TRB has gone on record to explain that O2 was introduced, unintentionally, during pre-bottling. Whatever the case may be, this bottle from magnum, was glorious. One of the best CA Chard experiences I can remember. Wonderfully aromatic with a profound balance of richness, acid and length. Lemon curd, with the occasional pineapple flavors and a very complex nose. It seemed very Meursault 1er Cru to me in character (think Matrot Perrieres without the premox). This bottle never let up over the course of the evening. I kept going back to it all night and with 13 people around, not a drop left. Divine stuff!

  • 14.1% alcohol. This has aged nicely. Medium yellow color. Pretty nose shows some baked apple notes and a buttery wood edge. Certainly more mature than it was four years ago. Supple on the palate, with the acidity having mostly resolved. Tapers a bit on the finish. Nice stuff but not as good as it was younger. A-

  • This was really good tonight with fresh Halibut, and sweet chili Brussels Sprouts. Wine has rounded out and is now a nice golden color in the glass. I'm not sure if it can improve (its great where it’s at), but I don't think it is in any danger either.

  • Checking in on this one after nearly 4 years. Medium golden color, with light aromas of apples, pears, and a hint of spice. The palate shows beautifully maturing flavors that are very nicely balanced, with citrus fruit, brioche, and light vanilla bean notes. Plenty of life now, but I would drink remaining stocks. Very nice chardonnay.
