Trio Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

The nose delivers pear and banana with a mouthfeel of apple and floral notes. This one has a bit of bottle age and would be perfect for my palate with a bit of oak. Good Friday night drink never the less. — 8 days ago

The Hess Collection

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

Apple and starfruit with a touch of toffee and citrus blossom on the nose. Asian pear intertwined with lemon curd on the palate. Nice light buttery textures, but in no way overpowering. Medium acidity cuts through the creaminess to create a fantastic balance. — 7 days ago


Chardonnay Harms Vineyard 2016

My kind of chard. Thought I got a whiff of doughy flour at one point. Either way, just right amount of oak, but not too much like most others. Very happy and bright. I drank the whole bottle in one night. — 13 days ago


Sugar Shack Chardonnay 2012

Huge!!! In the Trumpian vernacular! High alcohol, impressive oak. 5 years old and the oak is still dominating. Rich super ripe with a long domineering finish. I love this wine! I hate this wine! Everything I dislike about Cali Chard. But it works in a weird way. Long hammering finish. Try again in another five years. — 19 days ago

Napa Valley Chardonnay

Valentine’s Day wine #1 Very pleasant. Full bodied Chardonnay. A bit on the oaky, buttery side but I’m ok with that. — 3 days ago

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Finch Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

2014. Prototypical Cali chard bomb. And I more or less mean that in a good way. Thick. Oaky. Great fruit. Viscous. Almost too much at times. — 10 days ago

Stony Hill

Napa Valley Pinot Chardonnay 1974

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Looks older. Notes of dried apricots and beeswax. In the mouth it's nicely rich, but there's no significant acidity to balance against the fruit. We are all convinced this isn't Chardonnay. I guess 70's Bordeaux Blanc. No, its (old) CA Chardonnay. Interesting data point. — 21 days ago

Blue Beret Estate Grown Napa Valley Chardonnay

Does this approach the heights of what Chardonnay has to offer? No. Is it the best wine I've had at this mediocre wine bar tonight? Yes. — 8 days ago

Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

A bit tart. Not as complex as I was expecting. Not going to be added to the everyday drinking list as I’d hoped — 22 days ago
