Golden yellow colour with a full body mouthfeel. Lemon zest, pineapple, vanilla, baking spices and burnt pie crust on the palette. Overwhelmingly oaked gave it a smoky flavour….almost felt like the true essence of the wine was a bit lost beneath the smoke.

An elegant, expressive and awesome California Chard: incredible creamy vanilla notes on the nose, followed by a nice slight oak meets slight citrus to combine and form a perfect union of bliss. Golden color, sharp finish and a fine example of why Napa is such the big deal that it is.

A nice and oaky Chardonnay from California. Showing citrus, pineapples, bananas, tropical fruits, kiwi, oak, vanilla and spices.

Medium-plus in body with medium acidity and a tangy finish.

Nice mouthfeel.

Better than I expected from the name and better than the previous vintages that I had.

Good by itself as a sipping wine by the porch.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$13.

Buttery but the sharp aftertaste didn’t mix well.
