globules of sweetness, lacking any signs of acidity...sorry but this is a train wreck....blind I would have thought Rombauer, which is a perpetual oak slathered butter stick mess. 😈

Nice mineral with hints of pineapple, pears, butterscotch.

Buttered brioche, baked apple, Meyer lemon and light oak treatment. Nicely balanced and moderate finish.

Puréed spiced pomme fruit, vanilla-lemon custard, buttered apricot, citrus blossom--long and full, elegant w great acid backbone to hold it up.

Robust Chardonnay that's oaky and buttery but not overly so.

Fat, buttery, creamy. A typical Napa Chardonnay. But well made for this style.

Simply not drinkable for most wine geeks...
