Any more oxidation and I couldn't fuckin drink it... Yet it rides that line and everything else about it seems like some kind of commentary on the state of Chardonnay in America. Happy thanksgiving. Perfect wine in my opinion.

Really heady stuff. Totally disconnected out the gate and then fun to watch the components recombine. Big Fan!

what a crack'n bottle! #crusewineco #rorickvineyard #chardonnay. wee hint of skin contact texture, with nose of bosch pear, river stones, & palate exuding richness while being tethered to electric acidity. Divine stuff! want more.

Good vibrations. Lemon, green apple. Great acidity and energy to this one.

Lemon, mineral, rich yet bright, comes together nicely

Delicious. It managed to have a certain richness but also maintain a bright tartness too.
