This is a very enjoyable Chardonnay from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced and not to oaky, although it has enough of that.
Easy drinking with a pleasant mouthfeel. Soft and elegant, buttery and spicy. Really enjoyed the nose here.
Might have a small touch of RS to balance it out.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses, by the lake.

Awesome. Herbaceous and minty but lush and textural. Rivals champagne for sure, with a little something extra and unusual that the latter can’t provide. — 20 days ago
