Very very creamy and robust. You have to like big chardonnay to enjoy this! (Luckily for me I like all forms of Chardonnay.) I don’t find the oak overwhelming here though. It’s more MLF bold than oak bold, if that’s makes sense? 🤷♀️ Oak is definitely present — I just don’t find it over the top. Pineapple, cream, vanilla, lemon curd. — 12 days ago
Baked raspberry and strawberries, minerally river rock smoothness, black cherry, smoky dried cran.
On the palate rich raspberry and cherry candy drive-by, dried cranberry, and violets. Top notch Pinot singing long and loud arias to tug the heartstrings.

Delicious. Not over the top like many cabs. Easy to drink. — 10 days ago
N: Lemons, ginger, banana peel, very fresh, like a just passed thunderstorms sun. You can smell the oak, but it’s￼ like a ghost in the background.
P:Lemon custard, ever so light, creamy,tart, long finish, slight wood. He was really talented.

If served this “ blind”, very few would peg it as a Cali Chard. A stylistic response to criticism of previous, over the top Chards.
With time and air, some flinty mineral goodness appears along with the sensation of citrus pith. — 19 hours ago
