Well balanced !! Great value at $63 tell — 10 days ago
A complex Chardonnay from renowned producer Steve Matthiasson. Sourced from Linda Vista vineyard, in the Oak Knoll District, at the southern end of the Napa valley. (Due to its proximity to the San Pablo Bay and the cool winds from the ocean, average summer temperatures are considerably cooler than in the upper valley, making it an ideal area for Chardonnay in Napa). Fermented and aged in neutral oak. Apples, melon, some buttery notes on the nose. Green apple on the palate. Fresh, good acidity. Slightly creamy, rounder and fruitier than the Chablis tasted next to it. Mineral, a hint of salinity

Nice balanced cabernet, but massive headache later after only a couple glasses… — 12 days ago
Quick note from a charity dinner event. 4th bottle.
There are plenty of fresh red fruits to balance the ripe black fruits on the nose. Powerful full body, the flavor is more savory than the nose suggests. Oak is well integrated. Ample candied tannins.
Very nice cab from Oak Knoll, an AVA I’m not familiar with. — a month ago
