    February 20, 2021 - Light lemon, spice, bit of that chalky mineralty I like but not austere-some ripe fruit in there makes this a medium-bodied glass. I think the acidity helped this wine maintain balance and structure through the years. Very tasty.
    An argument for US Chard. (See also Walter Scott 7 Springs for a taste of what American wine makers are putting up against white burgundy. )
    ps: I agree with the comments of WST from 2016.

    April 15, 2017 - Maybe emerging as my second favorite LF Chardonnay. Great acidity lifting citrus and minerals with a palate coating delivery. Lively on the palate yet demonstrating body and structure. Juicy goodness and drinking lovely right now.
