Tried this about 6 mos ago. Chalk Hill winery now owned by Bill Foley, of Foley Family Wines, who continues the traditions that Fred Furth, who founded Chalk Hill in 1972. The ‘17, the latest vintage, medium lemon color with aromas of stone, tropical fruits and citrus notes. On the palate ripe apple, sweet melon and lemon flavors with vanilla and nutty toasty oak. Well balanced on medium+ finish ending with oak and mineral notes. A favorite. Tasting Sample.

Banana Laffy-Taffy for days. Fine, but not a style I enjoy very much.

Nice color, a little on the citrus side but balanced by the mineral Flavor.
