I like this wine a lot. Subtle, integrated oak, focused, textured and not overly concentrated/sweet.

Love this wine. Drink at slightly below room temperature... let it open up for 30 minutes . Mineral/acidity soften up so nicely. Tropical notes are delicious! What a surprise.

Clean, focused, and precise. Subtle lemon pith and apple with nice brown spice and seashell like minerality all on crisp, clean structure. Hints of honey but only slightly. Very pretty and focused. Give this time to develop. 3-5 years at least.

Elegant, pristine clean. Generously packed with ripe yellow apples & tons of leesy character. Solid, lingering finish. Great discipline in this Sonoma Chardonnay!

Bright, flinty with a high acid that doesn't rip off the enamel of your teeth, this is great stuff and I actually enjoyed better than that Chablis at the table

Hanzell "Sebella" Chardonnay 2012 - pale straw hay yellow, nose of lemon, chalk, wet stone, and white flowers. Palate is crisp and clean. Green apple with barker pear flavors. Great acidity. The spices are mixed with citrus and flowers, and really bring a lot of fun vibrancy to the glass. Love this. $36

This is a pretty golden wine with a pineapple and honey nose. Very round with green apple acidity, melons to peaches on the palate, extremely delicious. Long peach-pineapple finish.
