Member Review by kevsipe:

Drinking window: Drink between 2012 and 2015 (based on 1 user opinion) Community Tasting History Community Tasting Notes (average 89 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 11 notes) - hiding notes with no text Tasted by vin0vin0 on 3/25/2012 & rated 88 points: A very nice Napa chardonnay. Well balanced, not overly oaky or buttery, nice acidity and minerality. An excellent week day drinker, especially at this price point. (1358 views) Tasted by Maria3761 on 3/19/2012: enjoy this wine very much. recently toured their winery. beautiful place. i am looking to see what local stores carry this or would be willing to carry. so smooth, creamy, buttery. (1326 views) Tasted by MicklethePickle on 2/20/2012 & rated 92 points: This is damn good, and not just for the price point. Clean, clear, alive, with good legs. Lovely vanillin oak in the nose, plus cream, butter and tropical fruit. In spite of the fat the nose promises, there is good structure and a bracingly fresh acid backbone. This is really extremely nice. Nice long finish. 5-13-16-8: 92/100. (1432 views) Tasted by Box57 on 1/18/2012 & rated 90 points: Just how a good chardonnay should be - well balanced oak with a lingering finish. (1487 views)
