A great balance between oak and fruit. Very smooth with good acidity. This wine was really great.

No rating. Just want to tell you guys that a DJ accidentally spilled this all over me at a wedding. Eau de oak.

So, If you are just getting into white wines this is a good place to start. It is not too demanding of your palette. If your coming from moscato’s this is a step into the right direction. However, if you have been consuming wine for a couple of years you will not be pleased with this. Nothing special about it. This Chardonnay is something you may find in a store with a very small selection. That’s the only way I would buy it. It is often the big fish in a small pond.

Nice easy Chardonnay but I’d like more oak and toast! Really nice apple and acid, but won’t buy again.

Different from the usual CA buttery oaky Chardonnay. Not really my style but interesting

Smell: peaches. Sweet. Taste- good on upswing not on downswing. Effervescent . Long aftertaste. Jolly ranchers. Thin.
