Eastside Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2014

14’ Aubert Eastside Chardonnay The color has gotten a bit darker in the last two years. The nose is full of grapefruit blossom, lemon grass/peel. Palate- Rich, powerful, tightly wound.
Pineapple, peach, toasted almond, crème brûlée, crushed rock, touch of pepper, integrated acidity, and flawless balance. Starts to truly come together as it warms up. Drinking in it’s prime now .

Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Opulent nose of ripe apple, lemon curd and prominent oak. The palate surprisingly has great finesse and balance, given the sheer power of the aromas. Long finish. Definitely high octane CA Chardonnay, but delicious nonetheless. — 15 days ago

Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay 2014

Deep gold color. Intense nose of tropical and stone fruit, pastry, all backed by lemon notes. Full body, oily with a fair amount of oak. Long finish. Great wine, but even better if you like the style. — a month ago

Sugar Shack Chardonnay 2014

Had a guest today at FF. Showed him the list of chards, to which he said "That one should be drinking well." And, voila. Here we are. This Sugar Shack Chardonnay arguably outdrank its 2014 Ritchie Chard by just about a point. A little less sweetness, a little less salinity, a little more balance than the Ritchie. Ripe peach, pear, plantain with a little bit of dried herb. It has been about 15 months since I've had this one. Lots of yellow fruits and that Classic Aubert backbone. You sorta forget about other Chards when a duo of 2014 Aubert are on the table, and this was no exception tonight. — 22 days ago

Consistent with previous bottles enjoyed. Surprised at how this edged out the ‘14 Ritchie. Drinking wonderfully right now.

CIX Vineyards Chardonnay 2017

Glad I held a couple bottles for more than 6 months or whenever the 17 was released. It’s setting down now,
1 bottle left to do a blind tasting with Davis Estates Chardonnay
