Preserved Meyer lemon, ripe apple, and a masterful balance of oak, minerality, and Lees makes this a real treat - much better on day two. At this price point stock up. With lobster and richer dishes this big complex ripe wine is a winner

Very pleasant. Not as complex as I remember from earlier vintages.

Ooh bah oom ba ba.robust but dainty majorettes holding down the somewhat-oaky doc here. Sooooo bright! Acid keen! Alcohol still potent but this is no...I don’t know the right metaphor. It’s good.

Powerhouse Umbrian Chard on steroids. Apricots, rich vanilla notes. Probably needed a decant but perfect match for Tuscan appetizers...and for sure tastes best on home field!

This was a favorite of the week at the beach. Great acidity to balance out some oak notes, but the finish sang and the wine evolved. Would have blinded this as new world chard if not for the banging acidity.

Consistent fantastic. Balanced with a zing. A different kind of chard thanks to the grechetto. Great accompaniment to the fresh fish dinner. Bright and nice acidity.

A perfect Chardonnay with great balance. Lovely stone fruit with hint of vanilla. I enjoy this crisp style. Worth the price
