    September 25, 2021 - Decanted at 3:30 and tasted from 4:45 to 6pm. Again it needs the air but just wonderful wine. Very crystalline and bright with lots of minerality. Lemon, apple and white florals dominate. Really delicious.

    September 14, 2021 - This is about the same as four years ago. Citrus on nose and palate, not too oaky. Nice pairing with a pecan crusted flounder.

    June 4, 2021 - Sampled from a pristinely-cellared bottle, Hanzell's 2013 Chardonnay remains medium golden in color and highly aromatic, delivering a bouquet of citrus, white peaches, honeycrisp apples, wet stones and jasmine. Medium-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (14.3%) and with well-proportioned oak, it delivers flavors in line with the aromas. Layered and dense on the mid-palate and lengthy on the back end, this is holding up beautifully. Comparably cellared bottles will last longer than previously projected. Drink now-2028.

    January 16, 2021 - Tasted at a friend’s house. Small tasted. Really delicious, balanced old world style. Crystalline, but deep and full of flavors ranging from lemon citrus, green apple, white peach/nectarine, white florals and a minerally finish. Excellent!

    November 14, 2020 - Bright as the Holidays, which happen to be around the corner. Good cheer, indeed! Apples and stone with a vanilla kiss.
