A little hot. Could use another year and some chill on the bottle.

From estate fruit in Santa Lucia Highlands. A touch of creamy oak and butterscotch on the nose, but on the palate there is a balance if ML and non ML fruit. It's fresh with medium weight. Nice bright finish, pronounced acidity. Pineapple and apricot. This is a lovely wine!

Simply a very well made Chardonnay. Some tropical fruit, lime zest, oaky. Paired perfectly with asparagus with sauce Hollandaise and veal steak.

A lost and forgotten Chardonnay that held up amazingly well. Solid creamy oak finish.

Straight up yellow in color. Peach nectar nose. Oak, honey, grapefruit, and more oak on the palate. Finishes with oak and light acid that lingers.
