Pop n pour. Bit deeper golden hue than expected. Nose of apples and some citrus--touch of toasted oak? Minerals, apples a and butterscotch on the palate. Healthy oak but plenty of acidity. A little tight and I'd recommend hold or decant.
Very expressive nose, showing grilled pineapple, golden apple, toasted sesame seed, and jasmine on the nose. Densely concentrated and lushly textured but not sweet, with enough acidity to hold it together without being racy and some mineral edge on the finish. This is quite ripe and shows a fair amount of oak but it's well made in that style. But pretty clearly California, nobody would confuse this for Chablis.
Wine for Passover 2015; 4/4/2015-4/5/2015 (Our home): On pouring I was a bit worried. This is deep golden in color, looking much older than I expected. The nose was clean though with nice minerality, some red apples, and some pineapple. Great texture. Showing some complexity but still young on the palate. Worked beautifully with some home-made matzo ball soup.
Noise with granite and hint of green apple, ballenced acidity with full body silky palate. Long finish with high acidity. Very refreshing for warm sunny afternoon paring with soft cheese and dry-fruit chips. Closer to Chablis than California Chardonnay. Last bottle in my cellar. Wish for more.
