Lauren Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

First of all, the pic is courtesey of my wife Vanessa (and it’s an awesome pic if I do say so myself). Lauren is always my favorite of Mark’s chardonnays, and this one does not disappoint. Telltale notes of honeysuckle, lemon peel, apricot (or some other stone fruit), but surprisingly no trace of vanilla (which I was expecting given how Mark ages his whites). The wine has a beautiful mouthfeel, is balanced, and a flavor profile reminiscent of the nose. The complexity that characterizes the Lauren chards after a few more years in the cellar is not there yet, suggesting that this has many years of development ahead of it. Could turn out to be one of Mark’s best chards in recent memory, so if you have a few of these I’d open one now and put the rest aside and see how they develop. — 5 days ago

Sugar Shack Chardonnay 2012

Lovely and approachable from the start. Very nutty at the beginning. Acidity remained throughout. Creamy citrus, brown butter, creme brulée, and a nice weightiness to it. This one still has quite a bit of time. — 16 days ago

Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay 2014

Though not the same as it was pre-COVID -19, a handful of us were able to gather (while keeping our distance) to celebrate being back together and opened some fun wines to share. Wine is always better with good company.

En mag. Drinking Aubert in any format is a treat, but this was my first en mag. I think it reinforced my thought that their Hudson chard is the most accessible but also one to not hold as long. While this was drinking wonderfully, I’d imagine in 750 it may start shedding some fruit and entering a different phase. Aromatically it’s less in your face and more elegant with honeysuckle, lemon bar and baking spices. Juicy stone fruits, brown sugar, lemon cream and sea salt wash over the palate. The finish is round and rich as expected with their Hudson. Thanks for opening @Keith Fisher

Wow...what an introduction. This Pinot sings both to the nose and your palate. Dark black and blue fruits, chocolate, and earthiness. Superb — a month ago

Big and powerful. A lot of mid palate depth, leaning tropical in fruit tones. — 5 days ago

Eastside Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

16’ Aubert Eastside Chardonnay. Did this deserve a perfect score from Jeb & Parker?
I think Lauren /CIX / UV-SL consistently year after year outperformed this. Possibly could be Mark’s best 2016. TBD!?!
Happy Father’s Day! Edit - If you’re opening it anytime soon, decant it for a bit.

I think I’ve always given it more air than I did today. The alcohol stopped being apparent after three hours open.
