    August 24, 2019 - The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like lemon, apricot, vanilla, oak and butterscotch. It tastes like lemon, peach, vanilla, oak, butterscotch and apple. The body is medium. The wine has polished texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

    May 18, 2019 - Wonderfully expressive nose, with aromas of ripe papaya, wet stones, bread dough, and a touch of citrus. More tropical fruit on the palate with a delicate butterscotch on the first sip. Having an amazing balance of fruit and minerality, this medium bodied wine had a long and satisfying finish. I’m sure this has many more years ahead of it.

    April 7, 2019 - Reruns - The Wine Event: Unlike a bottle 2 years ago, this was not overtly oaky. In fact, it's one of the most harmonious domestic Chardonnay's I've had. There was butter, gentle spice, minerality, lime, peach and floral.

    April 4, 2019 - Reruns (Joe & Kehm's Place, Mpls): Light gold color. PNP, drank a glass over an hour plus. The last time I had this I said it was good, but need two years. Now, a little over 2 and a 1/2 years later this has blossomed into a real honey. Such pretty fruit, ripe but not ostentatious in any way, golden fruits, apple, lemon, with a tropical top note; the oak has melted away and this has impeccable balance. The palate is divine, full bodied and lively, deep and layered with lemon oil, Meyer lemon, chalk, butterscotch, golden apple, very nicely integrated and quite long. Wonderful.

    January 17, 2019 - From split. Needed 30 min. In prime with plenty of life left. Nice balance and no rough edges. Surprised in a good way.
