    April 18, 2019 - I did not finish for the other night and kept refrigerated and corked.

    The wine declined since first opening 2 days ago. Furthermore it Declined measurably. Not rating so as not to kill the score of a fine wine. It is far better than tonight's experience so shame on me for leaving it in the bottle for 3 days and expecting something better

    April 16, 2019 - Uping my last score. More initial notes in this tasting of cotton candy which morphed into apricot, honey and dried apricots. Quite sophisticated and can come across as a butter bomb to some but there is a tremendous level of balance into the finish. Acidity and fruit in harmony here.

    Probably the best Chardonnay of 2016 for the money which I have had thus far. Getting to my Aubert's (yes more expensive) and Shafer Red shoulder's soon.

    March 16, 2019 - Textbook Mondavi PR Chardonnay. The lovely nose shows tropical fruit, baked peaches, apples, and citrus. Full bodied, buttery, and glyceriny, with more lift, elegance, and verve than recent vintages. Warm baking spices layer the toasty, orchard fruit finish.
