Massive! I don't think I have had a white as huge as this one ever! Butterscotch, oak and something resembling fruit!

If there was pear and apple, it was mugged and beat up by the vanilla and cinnamon (oak). The Martinelli 2010 Bella Vigna Chardonnay isn't bad, but you need to be a new world oak fan.

Awesome! Modest gold color. One of the deepest and richest Chards I’ve had. Melons, butter, lemongrass, and decent acidity through. Medium plus finish.

Very good. Smooth. Buttery. One funny smell I got, birthday cake.

Wonderful 2017 Zin from one of my favorite producers. Paired with quail from an earlier hunt.
