    August 27, 2018 - Golden, fleshier and overtly riper than the last, more understated bottle about six months ago. Very Californian IOW, where the other was pretty Burgundian. However, the addition of an ice cube to both take it down a notch in temp and dilute the ripeness firmed it up beautifully.

    July 3, 2018 - Everything Neecies said. Pop and pour. This is an absolutely fantastic Cali Chard. Nose reminded me a bit of PYCM style. Complex with a touch of popcorn, suggestion of minerality, spice, pickled ginger, lemon peel...wow. On the palate, great acidity, and amazing minerality. Loads of citrus and minerals, and serious body, but nevertheless light on its feet. My wife guessed white burgundy blind and was shocked when I told her Cali. This definitely pays homage to burgundy, but I feel like it has a Cali exuberance to it. Amazingly good.

    April 3, 2018 - Dinner wasn't quite ready so I just poured a tiny bit into a glass to test it, and almost cried. I smelled and tasted the kind of flinty secondary development I really only find in white Burgundies. With air it developed roasted hazelnuts, spice, ginger flowers and even a little white truffle. Going big on the points--this is one of the most complex California chards I've ever had.

    April 30, 2017 - Nice tropical and orchard fruits framed with nice acidity and lively delivery. Good mouth feel and seems to be hitting its stride in terms of being more integrated. I did not get the presence of the oak as much because certainly the fruit is on the forefront of this offering. Being a big Golden Slope fan I don't pay enough attention to this LF offering. Definitely stood out on this occasion.

    February 26, 2017 - Popped and poured. Served with sautéed shrimp. Nose of lemon curd, green apple, fig, and toffee. On the palate lush with meyer lemon, apple, fig, and a buttery sensation from malo and oak. Pretty good finish. Great match with the shrimp. Needs a little more time to completely integrate the oak but the raw ingredients are there.
