ALWAYS a winner. I could drink nothing but this winery for the rest of my life and be happy.

2016 has some slight vanilla undertones but it’s crisp and dry. Tight acid. I’m getting some great topical fruits of mango and pineapple with an appeliness. Yum!

2011! Tiny touch of that diacetyl thing but still kicking!

Ripe peach, Apple, and pear all sprinkled with lemon zest. M body and acid. Long finish. The fruit carries through on the palate.

Food wine. Not terrible but still too much malo. For gods sake let chard be chard. Talk to burgundy. Love you guys

Really lovely, the Evening Land Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2014 brings with it sense of refinement. Like a classically tailored blazer, its texture is soft but structured, underpinned by a layer fine tannins and bolstered by lithe and lovely notes of lemon zest and blanched almond, pencil shavings and orchard fruit. Under winemaker Sashi Moorman's direction even a warm year like 2014 feel reserved and just a little bit Burgundian. Sample

Popcorn butter up front. Spice flavors (clove?) on the enduring finish.

Great balance. Would love a touch more acidity but quite nice overall.
