Great with fish (tilapia) — 2 months ago
Not bad. Either this one is asleep or just made more on the timid side. Pear and herbs. Acidic from start to finish. Middle has a bit of mushroom and a sweet, almost semi-tart character. Nice, but probably not a wine to drink with heavy foods. Even a really funky cheese would probably overpower this wine. Aubert 14 Eastside and 11 Kistler McCrea crushed this one quite easily. — a year ago
Green Apple on the nose; limestone and toasted caramel. Sea salt and a little bit of marzipan on the palate but certainly not as savory as the ‘12 McCrea last weekend. More tropical fruit like with mango! Holding up surprisingly well with crisp acidity. Not getting any better, enjoy now! — a year ago
Stony Hill Vineyard was founded in 1943 when Fred and Eleanor McCrea bought a goat ranch on Spring Mountain in Napa. Today the winery is run by son Peter McCrea, still is best known for Chardonnay. Aromas of stone fruit and citrus. On the palate apple, melon and pear flavors, with some lemon zest and toasty notes. Nice balance with acidity on lingering finish on a gently spicy rich mineral ending. Classic CA Chard, very nice! — 2 years ago
Christmas Eve wine for the Osso Buco. Started with Kistler 2010 McCrea. — 4 years ago
Tasted with a 2011 McCrea, this one had a lot more on the McCrea but they were both a little strange. The McCrea had a long overly lemon tart finish that was out of balance with the more delicate front and middle. This one had better acid from start to finish. The entry was a bit more tropical but actually rather crisp. Good salinity. Very good weight in the middle. Took about 30 minutes to find its feet though. Really good balance. I think this one has a brighter and more rounded finish than the McCrea and also probably has quite a bit more left in it. Is this in a dumb phase? On decline? Who knows, but I'd drink now. — 9 months ago
