    May 17, 2017 - Fantastic Chardonnay. Doesn't get much better than this domestically I feel.
    Gorgeous bright yellow fruit with excellent mineral notes as well as some toasty elements.
    Everything you'd like in New World Chardonnay with some nice restraint.

    March 10, 2016 - Oregon @ Portland (Portland, London): Mid straw. A touch of tropical fruit, mainly pineapple, and a whiff of something herbal and minty. Really quite complex on the Jose. Fuller and richer on the palate. A touch of heft — feels heavier than the 13.2% abv quoted. Decent, very decent even, but made to look a little clumsy alongside the Bergstrom. ***

    May 2, 2015 - Pop and poured, consumed over 3 hours. Nose: Medium expressiveness. Meyer lemon, butterscotch, and wet stone. Palate: Medium-full bodied, creamy mouth-feel, sweet citrus attack - pear, pineapple, and green apple, mid-palate acidic lift creates great balance with the sweet up-front citrus - it's very apparent this fruit has been given the "beautiful" treatment Maggie aspires to give - nearly perfectly balanced from front to back - the palate experience is as good as any I've encountered. Finish: Medium length dominated by perfectly balanced citrus and earthy minerals.

    February 22, 2015 - Deep flax color. Almost Carmel-like Cream Lemon Curd on the nose. Some subtle spice mid palate with a slightly buttery finish. Fat mouth feel. Definitely some oak here which I am not a big fan of but this wine is interesting for sure so I would like to try more and see how it develops.

    November 15, 2014 - Taste at FHE.
    Creamy, lemon lime curd, cantaloupe on nose. Spice and mineral components on mid palate.
    Zesty clean finish. Elegant and unique styling as a whole. This should age well.
