    January 16, 2022 - This is absolutely a baby still.

    A good dose of flinty (not farty) reduction, intense fresh, zesty lemon-lime, maybe slight peach and honeysuckle, oak barely peeking through. Palate delivers a really light-midweight, effortless fresh and expansive citrus profile, bright mid-high acidity, river stony sort of mineral component, and a lengthy lemon driven finish.

    Love it now but this has 10+ years of improvement. Hold

    November 14, 2021 - A carbon copy of my experience with this wine back in June 2020. An impressive world class Chardonnay showing layers upon layers of complexity, very judicious use of oak, a plethora of ripe green and yellow fruits, perfect balance, and notable, but unobtrusive acidity to support freshness and a very long finish. Demonstrates a clear sense of “place” in both the aromatic and flavor profile. At nearly eight years of age, this is hitting on all cylinders, with enough stamina to easily cellar for at least another 5+ years. Outstanding. 94+ points.

    October 2, 2021 - Light, limestone, slight oak component, butterscotch, then ends with an acidic finish that lingers.

    October 2, 2021 - Robert's Get-Together at Margaux's Table: PnP - This wine is always enjoyable, and this bottle was no exception! I didn't think this bottle showed as well as my previous bottle, but it certainly was still drinking quite well! Nose shoed plenty of tropical fruits. The palate started a little steely, but then showed layers of pear, melon, citrus and tropical fruits with nites of minerality (mostly limestone and saline) and finished with some notes of toasty oak. A very pleasant Chardonnay that always drinks above its pedigree! 93+ tonight!

    October 2, 2021 - Mixed Wines at Margaux's Table (Margaux's Table, White Bear Lake, MN): Light gold color. Drank a glass over an hour next to the '16. This was more ready to go, still vigorous with lots of dry extract, brine, ocean, and fresh squeezed lemon on the palate with great acid and rather mild, integrated oak at this point. The nose offers a mix of pear and green apple with the same minerality and delicate cedarbox, but more subtlety overall. Well balanced and great stylistically for me. This is getting close to peak.
