    February 13, 2021 - I decanted for 45 minutes and had with sautéed scallops over zucchini noodles.

    The appearance is medium with a a lemony colour. The nose is light with hints of lemon and grapefruit. Subtle cream

    On the palate it was off dry, medium body. Flavor Intensity was medium. I tasted lemon, cream and slight pepper.

    The finish was short with abit of white pepper. Overall a great wine. Very smooth. This was my last bottle.

    July 4, 2020 - This is the real deal. I look for balance in these larger scaled calaifornia chardonnay. Phelps delivers with sweet grilled pineapple, honeycrisp apple, hint a of oak and a rounded palate feel. Never overbearing, but has depth and richness. Not quite at the AG level for me but a really good wine.

    September 3, 2019 - Celebrating my birthday with family at The Girl and the Fig in Sonoma. Better than the bottle I had in June in that the oak is now more fully integrated. Again, citrus and melon on the nose. Bosc pear and some filbert-like nuances in the mouth. Still young,
