    October 3, 2019 - Aging gracefully. Well balanced without sig ox. Hints of butterscotch, lemon curd. Moderate long finish

    September 26, 2019 - This has aged beautifully, even better than the Vine Hill and Dutton of this vintage. Probably 5 years of great drinking left. How lovely to drink CA chard with great secondary complexity. Nose offers almonds, sherry barrel, cumin, baked sweet potato, caramel, white pepper, hazelnut oil, and baked pear. Most of these carry through on the palate, but complexity begins to break down and drift toward oloroso after 40 minutes open, so invite friends for a veal roast , use a bit of the wine and rosemary to finish a fresh mushroom sauce, baked sweet potatoes, and don’t open this till food is served. Terrific juice!

    March 24, 2016 - I love age worthy chardonnay and this is one. It is drinking very well. Looking forward to enjoying future bottles to see how it continues to evolve.

    November 14, 2015 - Light gold in color. Nose of minerals. Delicious palate of minerals, steel, butter and popcorn. Long finish and balanced. A big wine in a nice way. Fabulous!

    October 16, 2014 - Dark yellow color. Not much aroma or flavor. Cork was tight with hardly any "creep" up the cork. Seemed past or mildly oxidized.
