Clearly california, but definitely makes an attempt at balance. The fruit is amped up and has solid acidity. Has a nice creaminess to it (malo?). Something for everyone here.

Reminds me of a 1er Cru Chablis. Rich and balanced without the typical California butter bomb. Acidity is holding up well for the age.

@Kirk Alexander Thank you buddy for such a wonderful gift!! You are invited over everyday from now on!! lol Amazing Chardonnay which is always a steadfast pour. Rich, textured and layered. Badass in a glass as I always say!

Some lemon, tropical fruit perhaps, good burst of acidity and some oak spiciness on the finish. Nice wine
