Community Tasting Notes 2

    October 19, 2019 - Drinking well, and a good example of the potential for the Santa Rita Hills AVA to produce high quality ageworthy Chardonnay. Quite reductive and complex nose with flint, fresh cut apple, and lemon zest. Precise and focused on the palate, with minerals, apple, and citrus notes. Plenty of acidity, cut and lift on the finish. Very nice, probably lacks a bit of density and power but plenty to like and not likely to collapse anytime soon.

    January 15, 2015 - This appears to be an unfined and unfiltered wine....which suits me. No flavors are lost. It's a light and subtle chard with no disagreeable aftertaste, something that befalls even classy wineries.14.0% ABV. Great with food. Im buying more.
