    March 29, 2019 - Oak and mild citrus on the nose, a little more lemon curd and Meyer lemon on the nose than bright citrus. Nice body, slightly silky and the acidity has dropped off substantially. A lot of oak and really doesn’t have much vibrancy or bright citrus notes left at all. Ripe apricot, lemon, but a lot of oak on this one. Not very interesting or complex, but a better version of a typical Oaked CA Chardonnay so in that regard it is worth having. This would probably be better 2-3 years from vintage as I remember having more acidity and brightness when tasted at the winery and closer to release. Would drink now.

    December 24, 2018 - Great aged chard at 5 years +. Apricot nut, pear, almost a cardboard mouthfeel of dry texture. Vanilla finish with that ever present cedar wood lingering texture. The best its been to date and just perfect. Drink now and over the next year.

    November 20, 2018 - This is remarkably mediocre and weak acidity- and structure-wise. I don't knot what Galloni was tasting with his 94-point score, can't be this (and my prior tasting from about two years ago is similar).

    July 1, 2018 - Wonderfully creamy chardonnay. Apples, pears and floral tones. Low acidity, high viscosity - glycerine on the palate. CDecent finish for a white. No oak just a full flavored US chard. If you like them you will like this. Drinking beautifully.
