First wine of 16 is one of my favorites from prior years. Salinity, lemon zest, and good acid.

Fully on skin ferm. But don't fear, for this is finesse. Great aroma, balance and a creamy texture.

Wow what a babe of a wine. Just spilling over with energy. Great example of site doing the winemaking. I need to see where this is in another 6 months and then maybe in a year.

Could it be that his Chardonnay’s are more exciting when young? This 5 year old has a a touch of hazelnut then lime elegant and nicely balanced but it does not really distinguish itself enough to get a higher rating. From KogodWine.com.

Massive, perfumed nose of 100 scents. Full mouthfeel with some tannin, so I get the joy of the fermentation happening on skins. Beautiful and begging for food.

Nice salinity. Rich mouthfeel with a hint of burnt sugar.
