    March 20, 2020 - Liquid gold! The aroma and taste are super focused. Popcorn, honey scent, citrus are exploding in your palate with a long long finish. However, the body is a bit too strong. The balance is prone to sweet and creamy, so the multi-layer characters are buried under that. Time may improve that.

    November 29, 2019 - Yellow color with a bouquet and flavor dominated by excessive oak with only hints of an apple and citrus core. I would be surprised to see improvement with age and cannot explain the difference in my impression from that of other tasters who found the wine quite good if not exceptional.

    June 13, 2019 - Decent Chardonnay, just a bit overpowering. I think I need to let my last two bottles sit for a year or two.

    May 11, 2019 - Lemon meringue and just a touch of oak. This is my kind of Chardonnay
