    June 11, 2018 - Acid bomb, and not a mineral driven good kind. This thing was mouth puckering acidity and not much of anything else.

    October 10, 2017 - Even better tonight. This verges on being one of the great modern Napa chard's. Reminds me of a backwards Chateau Haut Brion Blanc. Instead of the mineral, stone fruits, and acidity being up front with that creamy backside, this wine starts with the creamy and very wood texture up front ends with the pineapple, green apple, and mineral driven acidity at the finish.

    This is a really special wine which challenges convention and is worth finding. Bravo ! I'll bet the next time I try this is over a 95 !

    October 5, 2017 - Terrific showing of a balanced modern Chardonnay. Classic aromatics which I would expect of $60 chard from Napa. It is the mouthfeel however that drives this wine. Viscous and buttery while also holding onto the lemon meringue pie and sweet pineapple background. Absolutely difficult to do and present herein. Beautiful wine !
