This is a delicious Chardonnay from Napa Valley.
This three-year-old needed a lot of time to open up properly. I opened it yesterday, and I did not like the nose at all. So I put the cork back, and kept it in the fridge overnight. What a wonderful difference.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Showing citrus, lemons, apples, pears, tropical fruits, guava, lychee, black pepper, spices and light oak.
Nicely balanced with a fresh mouthfeel.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
Easy drinking and good by itself or with food.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.1% alcohol by volume.

Moone Tsai tasting on our Nashville getaway. Started with the Chardonnay. Using our metal travel glasses, so there is no notes on color. The nose gives me an initial impression of the salinity of an ocean breeze over sea water. I also get pineapple on the nose. Mouthfeel is full-bodied. This wine is complex with hints of oak and a notes of creamy bananas foster. This is one of the best Chardonnay’s I’ve had. So much going on. — 20 days ago
Outstanding. I loved the 2018, and the 2017 is just as good. Bright, fresh tropical fruits. Lychee, coconut, pineapple, and tangerine. A bit (but not too) buttery and zesty. — 8 days ago
