Smells like Chard. Butter and scotch. Maybe a hint of citrus. Taste is also Chard-y. Riper side. Plenty of oak. Kinda CA classic style. But not really mine.

I grew up in Davis so it’s funny to see a wine sourced from “the Dunnigan Hills,” which I think of as a Yolo outpost of rural poverty toward Yuba City. Now it’s wine country! Cheers! Oaky smoothness over hot weather Chard. MB liked it well enough.

I don’t have a sophisticated description of this wine other than it tastes like the best melted butter you have ever tasted!! Paired well with popcorn

Smooth start with stone fruit flavor and earthiness. However it finishes a bit acidic.

Yummy Chardonnay. Crisp and refreshing. A perfect pairing with chicken.

Alrighty....took advantage of the bevmo five cent sale which means I am stuck with a second bottle of this guy...so...apple grass citrus to the nose. Lemon pear slight butter and ever so slight pinapple and Bannana to the front palate. Oak on the back end. Decent mouthfeel and a short finish. Not overly bad for a weeknight but nothing I would serve to guests.
