Asian pear, golden delicious apple, and faint hazelnut on the nose. Taste is pineapple, super ripe pear, and vanilla creme brûlée. Heavy oak, rich, and a tad flabby but not intolerable with food. Had with carbonara and would pair well with other heavy pastas or triple creme cheeses.

Pours butter in color. ON THE NOSE: pineapple and buttered popcorn. ON THE PALATE: honeydew melon, and butter. Acid level seems low leading to some flabbiness. Not crisp. Light body short finish.

Like buttered toast with apricot marmalade. And still, for whatever reason, my guilty cougar mom pleasure. Why? Not sure.

Kristen Barnhisel- Fresh and balanced – not your ordinary Chardonnay! Inviting nose of peaches, yellow floral, and baking spices follow through with fresh citrus, crème brulee, and hint of oak on the long finish

It's very rare for me to like a Chardonnay but this one is on point. Very tasty. Not bitter like most. Impressed.
