Not over oaked, not over buttered. Something I could drink on any day even in the winter.

Great and well integrate amount of oak. Acidity medium and a good amount of flavour profile and aroma

Smooth, fruity, not too acidic, can stand alone or go with food. Good value for the price.

Smooth refreshing chard on a hot NYC night. On my way to see Seinfeld. And why do they call it wine I mean who whines.

Disappointing. No oak, no personality

Wet clean and bright, with enough character and depth to last on the palate.

Very crisp Chardonnay with hints of lemon and vanilla. The 2015 was it excellent - would be that much better if it could age for another year or two. Will be on the lookout for a 2013 or 2014
