Wow no ratings. Well I don't have sisters but I have daughters. And these sisters do a great job. Full mouth of lemon, with peach and light apple — a day ago

I love this wine! I tasted kettle corn. A lot of fun

The Ojai Vineyard

Solomon Hills Vineyard Chardonnay 2006

This is actually the Special Bottling of the 2006 Solomon Hills chardonnay. Adam Tolmach describes finding the chardonnay grapes coated in botrytis in 2006 and decided to pick and ferment the best lots separately. Made just over 130 cases of this utterly unique wine. Incredible depth in both aromatics and flavor, this 100% dry wine has notes of lemon peel, white flowers, and honey coupled with great weight and mouthfeel. There’s plenty of acidity to keep the wine moving - which is an impressive testament to its balance - making for one of the best chardonnays I’ve had in a long time. And I almost forgot: this wine is nearly 12 years old and still evolving. Awesome. — 21 days ago

Love this wine great recommendation 🙂

Deep Sea

The Sea Turtle Chardonnay 2014

Sea salty steely nose. Light lemon palate, low to medium perceived acid. Nothing special.

Surprisingly better the second day, with respect to dimension and perceived oakiness. Better rounded and more drinkable on its own.

Golden Slope Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2015

A favorite bottle to commemorate some new ink. Always love LF, as this is a chard that definitely grows and progresses as it opens up and warms up in the glass. Beautiful notes of iris, candied pineapple, melon, toasted walnuts, and saline minerality on the nose. Gorgeous texture and purity of fruit.. bruised apple, Meyer lemon, papaya, and chalky minerals. Bright zingy acidity on the backend, but not as lean as something like Ceritas or Failla - a bit more baby fat and textural complexity on this bottle that keeps you coming back for more. A perfect hybrid of styles by Jeff Nelson and co. Paired with a creamy bow tie pasta with dried tomatoes and a spring salad. — 20 days ago

I’ve only had their entry level chard, this sounds nice. Think you told me about it when we were discussing Ceritas. Impressive ink!

9.3

AG nailed the numbers on the 09. What’s impressive about this is that it has plenty of runway ahead of it. Toasted almonds and a hint of pineapple on the nose, while the palate reveals honey, peach and caramel notes. Displays stature and grace, with soft acidity. No rush to drink this. I don’t see it further improving with age. — 2 days ago

@Robert Evans Jr the wine was great. I’m teaching my kids not to come to my home and quaff. Besides, I don’t answer the phone on Father’s Day 🤥

Presqu'ile Winery

Presqu'ile Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Rediscovering California whites - particularly the restrained style of winemaking prompted by westerly vineyards situated on cool current influence. Drinks like a burgundy with dollops of golden apple, Anjou pear, ripe peach, fennel, electric acid leading to a mint-laden finish on a medium frame. Lovely with scallops and meaty oysters, easy to sip with Marcona almonds or alone — 3 days ago
