    July 12, 2015 - Stunning! Tastes like a well aged Chassagne-Montrachet. Fabulous. Drink now or by 2017. LO

    July 26, 2014 - This wine has opened and is entering it's prime. Leesy brioche, white peaches, tropical fruit, balanced acid, nice oak hints, highly textured with some nice finishing minerality. 600 cases produced. From a 60-year-old vineyard planted on St.-Georges rootstock in the Goldridge soils on West Side Road in Russian River. David Abreu, vineyard manager, and Pat Sullivan was the winemaker, with consultation by Michel Rolland.

    August 31, 2013 - Very good California Chard. Rich and succulent. Slight bit of oak but not overdone. Had with Lobster poached in butter with truffle oil. Almost as perfect together as the Foie Gras and 03 Reiussec we had for an appetizer.
