    November 14, 2016 - See note for "estate vineyard"... The label says "Sonoma Coast". 2009. Beautiful wine. Lovely notes of vanilla, pineapple, baked brioche, pancake batter. Nice mouth feel and finish. Vanilla notes emerging in the glass. Wente clone? Nice style of wine.

    February 2, 2013 - - Light gold color with medium forming legs and aromas of pineapple, banana and apple. It's in total harmony and has flavours of honey, diacetyl (butter) and apple with a light/medium body. Satin-Like texture with a long finish - This is wonderful 09'. A hint of oak followed by a silky smooth nectar of sweetness that lingers on the palate for minutes. A great wine and holding very well in 2013.

    August 19, 2011 - Deep golden yellow. Tropical fruit nose with some florals. Full bodied Chardonnay. Meyer lemon, somewhat creamy texture, but still plenty of acidity. This transitions beautifully to the back of the palate with some orange peel and some spicy notes. Good length. This walks the fine line between becoming a bit overblown and showing some pleasant freshness in the mouthfeel. This is as close to ultra modern as I am comfortable with.
