Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 89.5 points

  • Golden color, a little more orange than apple juice. Nose of white flowers; pineapple, hard apple cider, and white flowers on the palate. Really enjoyed this--opened my eyes to the possibilities of non- or lightly-Oakes Chardonnay. Accompanied a chicken curry quite nicely.

  • Nice bottle. Pineapple, almond and pollen. The nose was fairly expressive with some complexity. The palette was deep and layered. While the color didn't suggest oxidation, the mid palette showed some subtle effects which I found pleasant and added character. The finish was medium plus. 8-17-7-7

  • Deep yellow gold, almost orange color, medium light viscosity in the glass; on the nose it's pretty clear this bottle is oxidized. Flawed bottle.

  • Dark golden yellow, like buttered toast, there is a bit of both butter and toast on the nose, as well. Also some grilled pineapple, stewed cinnamon applesauce, and almond. On the palate, the sensation is of a rounded, aged wine, with a soft, relaxed mouthfeel. Pineapple is the dominant flavor and the acidity is very good, but a fair amount of nuttiness and a lack of vibrance lead me to believe that this wine is a victim of premox. Still, it was quite enjoyable when first opened, and I definitely would have given it an above-average score within the first hour. But the wine falls completely apart after a couple hours of air, and I just don't think this is showing the way it should. I'm marking this as flawed.
