Really enjoyed the 2021 vintage on May 10’ 2023. Yes, buttery and oakey flavors. Would recommend! — 5 months ago
Not too oaky, smooth and buttery, full-bodied, pairs well with cheese and vinaigrette flavored salads. — 6 months ago
Easy drinking Chard. Not a big fan of Oaky Chardonnays but this one is very good. Definitely will buy again. — 10 months ago

v19. Outstanding!! Soft creme brûlée nose…￼now it gets interesting..Luscious, creamy, buttery tropical and Meyer lemon fruit. Full, sliver of tartness, smooth oaky finish. Well balanced. This is really good!!!!!! — 3 months ago
Buttery, banana, coconut, even tropical some might say. Super round. See the “U” on the label? It’s round like the bottoms of that “U”. — 2 months ago
I suppose there is no better place to start than with a fresh example of the wine that changed the game forever. This remains a very classic example of Napa Chardonnay in the most complimentary of ways. Ample fruit that lean on the more tropical (pineapple) side but falls short of being squishy. Lemon and lime citrus too. The oak is prominent for sure but it’s not a buttery mess. There’s good acid that gives plenty of lift and it finishes long. A very balanced wine that will probably benefit from 5+ years in the cellar. — 3 months ago
Perfect Chardonnay. Nice balance of oak but not too buttery. — 9 months ago
