Another first for us, we paid $8.99 for this bottle. The color was very light, with nutty notes and even butter in the nose. Slight to medium acidity, with strong pear overtones, subtle notes of apple. Very medium finish. Overall ok, not sure if I'd go there again.

We barrel fermented about 60% of this wine, andaged that portion in barrel for 4 months, offering thewine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, whilecold fermenting the remainder to maximize a freshfruit-forward character. Bright lemon and applearomas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity,and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spiceand refreshing acidity will have you coming backfor another glass. Enjoy this lively chardonnay nowand over the next couple of years.

Smooth, ripe and spicy, with lots of pear, melon and apricot flavors that are pure and pleasing. Ready now.

Light, smooth and silky, with pretty nectarine and vanilla flavors that show more up front than they do on the finish.

Full flavored and elegant, this Sonoma County wine blends crisp apple, pear and pineapples with a soft vanillin oak. A great choice for richer seafood and poultry dishes.

We barrel fermented a bit less than half of this wine, and aged that portion in barrel for 9 months, offering the wine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the other half to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. Bright lemon and apple aromas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity, and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spice and refreshing acidity will have you coming back for another glass. Enjoy this lively chardonnay now and over the next couple of years.

Blended from estate grapes as well as neighboring properties, this wine exhibits a tropical, buttery style upheld by a soft oaky undercoating. Try with your favorite seafood fare.

Shows nice pineapple tart, lemondrop, buttered toast and vanilla oak flavors, brightened with crisp acidity. Finishes quick and could be more concentrated, but itrsquo;s a very good elegant Chardonnay at a fair price.
