Some positive development in the bottle since my prior experience about two years ago (2018).

Struck flint, green apple flesh, citrus peel, light tropical fruit notes, medium acid levels but slightly clunky (citrus pith) on the finish, not detrimental, just waiting to come together more. Needs time, likely 2-4 years would be a benefit.

(With extended airing, the finish has smoothed nicely.)

Rich, elegant minerally, a hint of oak.

Beautiful Chardonnay, so approachable from pop/pour! Acid, mineral & stem notes were great, refreshing and hard to put this glass down.

Feels more like a great California Chardonnay. Oak and butter not ideally integrated, and there is lack of depth and substance at the foundation. Has very high quality fruit, pure, nuanced, transparent and concentrated, it is just that the structure and foundation cannot support this thick layer of fruit.
