    November 18, 2018 - "Holy Moly" the Merry Edwards Chardonnay was spectacular!! Other notes have captured the flavor profile. I am glad we cellared this for a few years!!

    July 17, 2018 - We discovered this in our cellar along with three others--a great find! The wine was terrific from the first pour--pulled the cork and started enjoying it. It is spectacular! Apples and pear on the nose and on the palate. There was a lovely hint of vanilla/oak, as well, on the palate. The finish was long and languid! The wine is "drinking as good as it gets"!

    December 1, 2017 - Mmm, nutty popcorn. Buttery, floral, citrus jam - lemon curd? What s yummy white for a crisp winter evening.

  • La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 92 points

    November 30, 2017 - From a bottle purchased upon release and cellared in pristine fashion, this wine is now medium-to-deep golden in color. Complex on the nose and palate, it delivers a core of melon, chamomile, honeyed stone fruits, caramel and vanilla. Full-bodied, freshly acidic and with nicely integrated alcohol (listed as 14.1%), it is rich and dense on the mid-palate, adding notes of spicy oak. Although there is good verve here, there is also a creaminess to the texture that persists all the way through the lengthy finish. Well-crafted and still with plenty of fruit, this Chardonnay has enough stuffing to easily reach its tenth birthday. Drink now-2021.
