Went to a tasting and they were featuring Chalk Hill, winery now owned by Bill Foley, of Foley Family Wines, who continues the traditions that Fred Furth, who founded CH in 1972. Had this β€˜16 about a year ago. Rich deep straw color with aromas of stone and tropical fruits and citrus notes. On the palate ripe apple, sweet melon and lemon flavors with gentle vanilla toasty oak. Well balanced on lingering finish ending with oak and mineral notes. Aged well. Tasting Sample.

Vegetal nose πŸ‘ƒ 😭. Big vanilla palate. I don’t know what this wine wants to be...

Not going to blow your socks off, but you'll get a bit of melon, and butterscotch and vanilla custard from minimal oak aging. Less citrus and more butter than some Chards. Good value

It was good but not as buttery or oaky as I like.
