March 12, 2021 - No formal tasting note on this except to say that I really think that the La Hermana greatly benefits from a good amount of aging. This felt way too young to me and actually felt quite closed even after a few hours of air. I would hold onto these and revisit in a couple of years. La Hermana is probably one of my favorite LF wines...but it's in an awkward place right now.
January 21, 2021 - Wonderful freshness, yellow apple, lemon, and mineral/sea air. A beautiful food wine with perfect acidity on the finish. Easy to love and briskly consume. A lovely domestic Chardonnay!
January 11, 2021 - Apple and tropical fruits along with some reduced mineral notes. Bright and energetic with a long finish. More full and up front than any LF I can remember.
July 22, 2020 - Fantiastic. Very bright.
June 10, 2020 - Medium yellow. Delightful crispness - lemon, whiff of pineapple, hint of lime, just a touch of honey-butter richness. Absence of oak makes enjoyable to drink.
June 6, 2020 - This was one of the best chardonnays for the money. You don't usually get both fruit and mineral exactly balanced, it's either on the sweeter side or the earthy side. But with this wine, I was able to get both at a very beautiful place.
Smooth minerally at the front palate, and honey, citrus, beautiful tropical component towards the finish. Just really well made, very impressed.
February 10, 2020 - lots of lemon with pear and some tart apple
February 9, 2020 - Good QPR
December 7, 2019 - Better, but
November 21, 2019 - Not my cup of tea, which is part of the nose.
