A bit different from what I expected but super fun. There is a lot of malo and tropical fruits but this doesn’t seem like a butter bomb. (FYI I am not great at distinguishing oak levels, but I was asking the people I was with and they agreed with me that there is a lot of malo). For a biggish Chardonnay that’s not a butter bomb but has softness and great tropical fruits go for this! — 21 days ago
Pale lemon in color.
Strong oaky nose of citrus, cedar, toast, vanilla, spices, golden apples and white pepper.
Full bodied, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with toasted oak, vanilla, spices, apples and black pepper.
Spicy finish with limes.
This is a young Oaky Chardonnay from Carneros. Big, bold and fruit forward.
Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature. I had the 2018 recently, and it was much better so its worth waiting for a bit.
A little much for me at this point, but it was a big hit at the table.
A good quality wine that needs time to chillax.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

A strong nose of lemons, with a hi t of tart minerality, this is a very unique Chardonnay. The flavor is bold, unfiltered lemon, with long lingering acidity, and a tartness that you don’t typically see in a Chardonnay. Definitely one of the few Chardonnay meant for chilling. — 8 days ago
This has some buttery notes, but it is really light, so it works. It’s creamy and citrusy, we get some nectarine and citrus flavors. — 8 days ago
Celebrating 21yrs, and after taking a 1st sip my wife my wife asks “ what’s it taste like on your mouth”…I’m in public, so I’ll refrain for saying what I really want to 😘🤣. Now back to the wine - everything Napa. Jammy, fruit forward, silky smooth, big fruit notes, and no tannic bite, even on first opening. Love it….and my beautiful life partner, a.k.a. Gift from Him on high. — 3 days ago
