    April 25, 2021 - Purchased on release from the winery, stored well since. Many years past its drinking window.

    May 1, 2014 - Still alive and tasting very good. Lively acidity, mellow flavors now, sort of woodsy on the palate, not oak, just forest notes.

    May 1, 2014 - The wine has a great golden color and checks in at 14.8% ABV. Exquisite aromas of tropical fruits, lemon oil, minerals and vanilla. Rich and concentrated with a burst of acidity. The palate shows pineapple, lemon, apple, pear, slate and minerals. The finish is exceptionally long. Great showing. The Chardonnay program at Williams Selyem should not be overlooked. Drink over the next year or so.

    July 16, 2013 - Light wheat color. Nose exhibits oak, vanilla, toasted nuts. Palate gives way to notes that are mature. Toasted almond, hazelnut. Vanilla, oak. There is great acidity and minerality. Moderate long finish. Kept thinking this would go great with a plate full of cheese. Good stuff.

    June 1, 2012 - Definitely not in the Kistler/Peter Michael style. Lean and acidic. Very food friendly wine. Lots of life left in it.
