    February 4, 2019 - Those who dread drinking overoaked California Chardonnay will embrace the fruit/acid/oak balance of this well-crafted Golden State wine. Straw-colored, vibrantly acidic and well-defined, it delivers a package of lemon zest, white peaches, honeydew and crushed rocks. Light-to-medium-bodied, softly oaked and without alcoholic heat (13.3%), it is solid on the mid-palate and closes with medium length. Anyone unfamiliar with the Talley family and their history of outstanding winemaking should take heed. Drink now-2021.

    December 25, 2018 - Pale gold in the glass with a generous nose of green apple, peach, honey, and stone.

    On the palate the wine is fresh and vibrant yet with a not-overwhelming creaminess. There are flavors of green apple and a subtle tropical note. Some oak comes forward on the mid-palate and there’s a tartness on the finish.

    Really, really nice chardonnay for around $25. You should be buying this!

    October 10, 2018 - Toast, baked apple, ripe peach and notes of chalk. Silky and lively with amazing chalkiness upfront. The fruit is ripe, but not overly done. It finishes with a hint of oak and a drop of lemon.

    June 17, 2018 - Good fruit with flavors of pineapple cantaloupe and a hint of lemon. A thread of Oak through out but not the buttery old style California Chardonnay

    June 15, 2017 - A bit too chilled, usually shows more ripe pineapple but today underipe pineapple. A bit discompopulated. It's been through TAS recently.
