Had the 2014 and was very nice with mushroom pasta. Not oaky and not buttery. Nice floral and finish.

Definitely needs to breathe abit but once that's done, it is quite nice. High minerality, not the best example of a russian river valley chardonnay but still delightful.

To quote my father, "if I wanted to drink water, I'd drink water". I'd tend to agree. Not much going on here.

Wonderful nose. Fruity. But lacks depth.

Initially very floral and fruity on the nose, but less so after having a chance to breathe.
