Gift from Dr Steve Lemos, wonderful if not slightly fruity Napa Cab. Aged tannins by now. Not heavily structured. — a month ago

Reserve Carneros Chardonnay 2014

This wine is kind of tricky. On the one hand it doesn't seem like it's seen an oak barrel in its life. On the other hand, it seems like it has been all of its life IN oak. Nose of popcorn kernel and oak. That kind of carries over to the palate as well. Was served a bit cold, and it really improved when it warmed up. Started to get a little more mango and melon, and some lemon. Never went to the tropical side. This wine seems to have quite a bit of age left, so if I had a few of these I'd probably hold them for 1-2 years before trying again. — 3 months ago

I agree with Mark in how this got better as it warmed. Salted and buttered popcorn! Wow. A continuous flip of heavy oak, and then it fades, then it comes back. Lanolin, honeysuckle, and honeyed cantaloupe on the palate. It was light on the palate but packs some heat. Finishes with an herbal/sea salt note.
