    November 6, 2015 - Drank our last bottle of many last night at Delmonico's Steakhouse in LV with friends. It went amazing with the oysters. Sad to see this Steel fermented with malo SRH chard go. Nice stuff

Not a lot of complexity or depth for Chardonnay but certainly a fresh, clean white wine from a region that doesn't seem to produce a ton of them. I would love to have more wineries in California producing white wine in this style.

    August 18, 2013 - Wine & Fire - Sta. Rita Hills Sat 8/17; 8/18/2013-8/23/2013: Honeyed notes of hazelnut, mineral, citrus zest, and savory herbs and spice. Complex and bright, flourishing through the finish. Excellent.

    November 4, 2012 - The first unoaked chardonnay that I was extremely impressed with. Aromas of stone fruits and citrus started off the show. Then a bracing acidity showing a tart lemond curd and hints of other citrus, chalk and minerals with an aftertaste that lingered on and on while the mouth kept watering. Very nice wine. My wife gave this 92 pts.

    February 22, 2012 - Light straw color. Lean peach and melon aromas. Nice levels of minerality and acid with subtle levels of citrus flavors.
