@Martin G Rivard - HFIC - you are coolest badass I know - this gift is beyond appreciation and rhonda and I are so grateful
I still feel like this is one of the top 5 Napa chards our there - just really hits the long week over Friday relax time feelings I have - thank you kind sir and in the words of the initial Godfather where Luca Brasi says (or paraphase)
“Don Corleone (aka HFIC) on this day you gift me this Edge Hill Chard, I wish you have more bottles show up in your cellar as masterful and as magnificent as this wine sir and I pledge that I will give my undivided attention and devotion to you and the WNH group forever”
I think it went like that -😂🍷👏👍❤️ — 5 days ago
Damn this was nice. Only got a few sips, unfortunately. Love the nose with Pears, boiled apples, lychee fruit, and just the right amount of oak spice. Can tell this winemaker was at Marcassin for so long. Can’t wait to see what this becomes in a few years. Thanks to Antonio for turning me on to this. — 3 days ago
Medium gold color. Massive oak, with some butterscotch, perfume, and lime on the nose. Palate is drenched with more butterscotch, butter, popcorn, and coconut. Tiny finish. Feels like I'm sitting at the movies!!! I like it, but don't love it. A touch too much OH as well. Definitely doesn't lack body or flavor. — 10 days ago
15’ Montagne Russe Silver and Gold Chardonnay. Holy mother. This is a beast of a wine.
Butterscotch, Banana foster👍, apricots.
Creamy finish with flavors such as caramelized peaches and custard. This wine is not everyone. If you enjoy Rombauer Club Selection Chardonnay $65 .
Bingo you’re a winner. — 5 days ago
15 Freeman Ryo- Fu Chardonnay. Combination of Keefer & Heintz Ranch Vineyards.
Golden in color. Lily’s and ginger on the nose. The palate has come together in the last eight months. It’s full of a splash of creamy tiramisu, lemon zest, ginger, slight influence of oak. Mostly mid & back palate. Complexity on the back palate is 👍. Nothing quite like this on the market. Drinking better than it did this past fall. Curious to see if the front palate will come together by years end. — 7 days ago
@Delectable Wine this is Robert Young SB, first year of release. It is not the Chard and there has been a label redesign. It is not in the database.
I screwed up, in the fact that I only bought two of these. Being an "inaugural release" of a SB from one of my favorite Sonoma County producers, I wasn't sure what to expect. Well, now I'm wishing I had a whole bunch more. Poured a lighter straw color into the glass. The nose is lemon rind, tiny bit of herb. The entry is more of a lemon meringue with very sharp acidity. Definitely lighter up front, but builds more of a creme brulee type of density on the finish. Very good QPR here as well. — 11 days ago
