Light golden in color.
On the nose ripe lemons, yellow apples, oak, light butter, citrus, vanilla, Indian spices, light honeysuckle and light tangerines.
Full bodied, creamy and bold, with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with red apples, oak, vanilla, citrus, spices, sea salt, white pepper and light earth.
Nice length on the finish with lemons and almonds.
This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Russian River Valley. Showing nice complexity, especially on the nose. I really enjoyed the nose more than the palate.
This four year old is drinking very nicely now with lots of oak and vanilla notes. Still very fresh.
Good right out of the bottle, and much better after 30 minutes of airtime.
This Single Vineyard Chardonnay is a good quality wine, that will continue to age nicely in the next five years. I've had this vintage a year ago, and it is much better now.
Nicely balanced with a great mouth feel. Buttery and creamy, and better when not very cold.
Aged in French oak barrels. A small production of only 350 cases.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Nose of ripe plum, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, cinnamon, and subtle tobacco. Good fruit concentration and intensity on the palate. Full body with cool acidity and velvety tannins.
Was thinking about the a Zin to pair with the burger, but this turns out to be just fabulous. — 9 days ago
I tend to like everything that @duncanarnot and @make but I don’t buy every wine they make, mostly because I don’t have an unlimited budget and there are some of their wines I really, really love. But recently I decided to get a bottle of their Kirschemannn Zinfandel, and it’s glorious. At 12.6% alcohol it’s this wonderfully easy-to-drink balance between boysenberry fruit and lovelely fresh herbal essence. Fabulous acidity and wonderfully floral finish. Zinfandel made like a Pinot Noir, if you will. Ethereal even. And how can you go wrong with vines farmed by @ownrooted? 2017 Arnot-Roberts “Kirschenmann Vineyard” Zinfandel, Mokelumne River, Lodi, CA. — 2 days ago
The label says it’s a rose. I think it’s actually a co-fermented field blend of white and red varietals. Drinks like a light red. Good chilled. Has a light spritz and a light, cider-like funk to it. Relatively light in alcohol. Almost reminds me of a piquette. — 2 days ago
Left this exposed to air for 90 mins, before approaching it. Nice classic chard presentation. Moderate oak treatment leads into soft acidity, caramel and mature pineapples. Nice weighty mouthfeel. Very well done and probably peaking now. — 13 days ago
This pale yellow wine produces a nice, white froth when poured. The nose has yeasty notes of citrus and stone fruit, with an earthy element that is fabulous. The toast and earth aspects are also present on the palate. It’s a dry wine, but there is a sweetness about it that has everything to do with the fruit. This is one California sparkling wine I could easily recommend. — 13 days ago
Like nothing I’ve ever had. Great nose of flowers, white pepper, honeysuckle, a touch of melon. Palate is such a great balance of acidity and flavor. Evolves as it opens. Way too easy to drink and went great with a simple chicken dinner. I get some great herbs and honey. So good. — 7 hours ago
