Nicely balanced between Oak & fruit. Lacking a bit in depth of flavors, but still enjoyable. I would buy again.

Meyer lemon, lime zest, heather homey,crisp red apple, lots of lees contact for thick mouthful. Minerals on the finish. For a CAS Chardonnay, more Burgundian like.

Not your typical Napa Chardonnay. Not oaky or buttery. Crisp and vibrant with plenty of citrus.

A little too buttery for my tastes but good crispness to finish
