Community Tasting Note

  • ikkaariainen Likes this wine: 89 points

    November 3, 2018 - Fruit starting to fade a bit so it is definitely time to drink up any remaining holdings - likely just a bit past prime by now. Having said that still quite a good bottle and enjoyable wine - very well balanced and much leaner, more reductive in style then many of the big name CA chards. Clear pale yellow and nose more fruity then body / palate with an intense nose of peach and apple spice. Good mouth feel, slightly acidic, leaner then expected with a hint of oak and butter but primary flavors included peach, apple and papaya - warmer sweeter fruit. Reasonably long aftertaste. Would definitely have recommended this up to even 1-2 years ago but cannot really any longer recommend at this point since as noted above I believe it to now be a bit past prime.
