A solid Chardonnay. I liked the overall balance. It had a mineral and grass aroma and just enough of classic Chardonnay “butter taste” without it being cloying. There was oak and a dry finish that makes it go well with opinionated foods. The grapes that go into this wine are not from any single vineyard. That might explain a lack of any particular character unique to the wine. For a California Chardonnay in this lower to mid price range it is a solid buy.

A very interesting Chardonnay, and easily worth the price. It was fermented in 50% new French oak, which gives it a creamy, smoky richness, while the underlying fruit flavors are ripe and rewarding, suggesting pineapples, Asian pears, green apples and Meyer lemons. A beautiful, complex and balanced wine.

Fragrant and fresh, this chardonnay has a leafy, minty edge to the fruit. While barrel-fermented, it barely shows its oak, feeling balanced and substantial enough to serve with fluke sashimi.

Lush pineapple, orange marmalade and Granny Smith apple flavors conclude with a light buttery finish.
