    July 29, 2015 - Dark lemon yellow. Buttery oak, tangerine, then subtle lemon and pineapple. Although richly oaked the acidity and depth of flavor do pull it off well. Very drinkable now. Not old. Held up better than some of the reviewers anticipated. Excellent quality for the price.

    Finished the bottle two days later, just sealed and in the Fridge, and it was unchanged.

    September 29, 2012 - 4th Saturday Brown Bagger (Our house): Deep straw yellow color. Aromas of coconut, banana, apple, tropical fruit and hazelnut. Full-bodied and rich, with flavors of mineral, coconut, toast and apple. Finishes well, with good length and plenty of fruit. Everyone guessed domestic Chard. Enjoy over the next three to five years. 90+ pts.

    September 8, 2012 - Dry, tasty wine. Fantastic on the nose, feels like it will be a frutier wine. BUT, in the mouth, very dry and intense. Great cost benefit, we loved it.

    June 23, 2012 - Light on the nose with hints of lychee, oak, and butter. Buttery and oaky on the palate with some mild acidity and hints of pear.
