Leaves old LF Chardonnay in the dust. Bright acidity with light oak, lime leaf, tropical, medium body. 120-something cases. — 13 days ago
Barefoot in the kitchen having this oaky Chardonnay. Not a lot of fruit, mostly oak and possibly past its prime. So glad the brand has moved toward crisp acidic Chardonnay. The 2016 is amazing and free of so much new oak. — a month ago
Lots of juiciness, Oak is prevalent, needs some elegance for the varietal. — 2 months ago
Influence from the lees and oak is there w pie crust and creme fraische, but it’s in balance with the acidity, yellow Apple, saline, and stone fruit. Incredible vineyard site, just amazing. — 21 days ago
Bright, dry and citrus, biscuit and snap. Like having a picnic with your badass grandma in a flower patch. — 2 months ago
Cherry cola, pomegranate, baking spice, bright color, Sonoma Coast all the way — a month ago
Cranberry, clove, pomegranate, cherry, and cola. Hibiscus there too with some brambles. Light vanilla, maybe some dark plum? A hodgepodge of clones at a great site. — a month ago
