Too much oak influence, but clearly some quality Idaho fruit here.

Not overly complex. A little spice and a slight smoke. Hint of blackberry on the long finish. Very tasty.

Okay Idaho, I see you. Peppery, smoky, varietally true and balanced. Nice!

Nice Chardonnay. Bright and crisp with slight oak and vanilla flavors. Enjoyed at the White House.

Yum. Lots of pepper. Tasted even better after 3 days rest.

Paired with Girl Scout's Thin Mints - blech.
Paired with hearty beef stew - magical.

Again=Sure.

So this was left open for 2 days and really evolved into a better wine. Great dark fruit but more cola and forest than when opened initially. A lot of vanilla is gone. Very enjoyable.
