January 1, 2011 - A little past it's prime. It has a nice structure and a nice nose. I wish I would have had this six months ago.
January 26, 2010 - Nearing the end of its life. Very tropical, but disjointed.
December 13, 2009 - Tasted corky - getting old
April 5, 2009 - Bright and crisp? How about almost tasteless? After all the hype on wine.woot and here, expected something much much better. Slightly flavored alcoholic water. Forgettable. This would be a nice, innocuous liquid to serve to people who were afraid of wine, but wanted something other than chilled water. They wouldn't even notice it. I give it an 'average' rating because it did not offend: just wasn't anything there.
I usually don't post many public notes, but this wine just rubbed me the wrong way (a total vacuum of flavor), and I thought I might save someone a few bucks they could spend experimenting with something else.
LOL, sounds kind of harsh, but honest!
December 29, 2008 - I continue to enjoy this, the 10th bottle of the case. It's not pretentious, but always pleasing.
December 2, 2008 - I think the only thing keeping this from a 90+ is a slight lack of complexity. However, this is our type of Chardonnay - fresh, bright (in a good way) with great acidity, and crisp but with enough classic chardonnay flavor to keep it interesting. A hint of oak, which is perfect. We liked it a lot.
September 26, 2008 - Pale lemon color, smells of bread and wet rocks and honeysuckle. Very well balanced chardonnay taste, although nothing remarkable stands out in the flavor profile. A food wine.
August 24, 2008 - Very crisp and refreshing.
August 23, 2008 - Wonderful Cardonnay. Tasted like a rich Sancerre. Great balance. Mild oak.
November 11, 2007 - Solid chardonnay. All the basics are there with a touch of vanilla and buttery smoothness from the oak.
