    September 24, 2019 - Y'all, I'm drinking this to the Dead on news of R Hunter's passing, to set the stage... the finish on this simply melts into your soul, a long lasting lemon wax and shine, that's what hit me first even though it came last. Nose is shy after an hour, but savory herb comes through and crisp fruit - green apple? Pear? - then w air the layers of complexity I can't quite grasp pile on, mushrooms & thyme. Palate is an acid punch with a pillow, leaving you woozy but happy.

    August 14, 2019 - Dilute, not much going on on the nose or palate, even with time and warming up... I really liked the 2013 vintage of this wine, but this just didn't do it for me

    December 7, 2018 - Likely well suited to a summer day, it has fresh, light flavors, but no more richness than a good Muscadet. I like it, but not at the price.

    June 4, 2018 - I love the idea of a 11.7 % Chardonnay and I enjoyed this wine. But it has the complexity level of an $20 Chardonnay. Maybe Rowdy is right and I am wrong and my perception of complex CA Chardonnay is base on something that is overdone.

    May 4, 2018 - Bright, brutish lemony furball of a wine. Went down singing throwing fistfuls of hay.
