  • I've drunk several of these over the years and the most recent was the least impressive. Nice combination of sweet and soft tones with a touch of lemon; balanced acid, good length, nothing to complain about and it went very well with roast chicken with root vegtables. Less vanilla is probably a good thing, but I was expecting something less subtle than this in the other flavor dimensions as well.

  • Happy Valentine's Day! Jen & I enjoyed this wine @ BluePoint Grill, Princeton, NJ. The wine had lovely notes of orange citrus, butterscotch and caramel, with no tannins on the finish. It was best w/ lobster, and w. grilled fish (e.g., tilapia, snapper) and didn't pair well w/ shrimp nor w/ a butter sauce. (the latter which would be a traditional Calif. Chardonnay pairing). A great wine: it made Jen like California Chardonnay!
