    July 31, 2020 - High summer pour. Chilled. Oaky nose and steely composition, not a very sweet offering this time, more in the oaky, citrus, quince category. Gaining a little depth and body with air and warmth, will update more. Under vac-u-vin and consumed through 8/13, steely notes chilled - quince, lemon chiffon, buttery oak. Sharp, delineated, good acid.

    July 19, 2020 - Toasty aged champagne taste. Could use a little more acidity to counter the buttery juicy fruit flavor. Quite enjoyable!

    December 5, 2019 - This trended a bit more buttery than I remember and what I’d like.

    October 11, 2019 - Quite light for a CA chardonnay. Nice citrus and white fruit notes. Very clean. Drank some later in the evening when the last bit in my glass had warmed. It was amazing and full of life.

    June 8, 2019 - WineBid bottle, PnP, from .375. This chardonnay was absolutely singing tonight. Mature bouquet and all its fat has been replaced with tropical delights. Nose of toasted hazelnut, coconut milk, papaya, and grilled pineapple. The texture is supple, still with enough acidity to achieve good balance. The wine is at apogee, drink over the next 1-2 years.
