    May 12, 2019 - Splendid. Burgundian nose, quite refined, floral with minerals. Lemons, a kiss of vanilla, dry but with lovely oily, dry extract. Bright and long. Drinking at pointe.

    December 12, 2018 - Apple, marshmallow and oak notes on the nose and palate. Full-bodied. Citrus notes emerge with air. Young. I may wait a year or two before popping the cork on another.

    December 12, 2018 - Opened by Allred at Eagle Brook. I burned through my four bottles by last year, but I should have waited. Oak is still present, but the balance with citrus notes in harmony here was beautiful. No hurry here.

    June 15, 2018 - On nose : buttered popcorn and oak.
    On palate : too much buttered popcorn and oak!
    .....hints of apple and pear trying to fight their way through the above....the only positive thing about this 8 year old Cali chard is the minerality and fresh acidity still in evidence .....this may last a few more years ,but age won't likely grant it more balance and complexity.
    Disappointing considering this producer's reputation as a fine producer.

    Tasted double blind.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of quince, talc, toasted and mixed yellow fruit. Flavors of lemon curd, vanilla and yellow pear. Light acidity, medium body. Drink now.

    My guess was this is a 2005 Chardonnay from Sonoma County, likely Paul Hobbs or perhaps Pine Ridge.
