Meh. I don’t mind a buttery Chardonnay now and again, but this one had strong overtones of banana, and fell flat at the end. Not really good in my opinion, and not very interesting.

Oakey and fruit forward. The berry flavors are not masked by the smooth oakey and vanilla nuances. Nicely balanced Cabernet.

Nice color of gold. Nose is nutty, ripe banana, a bit oak and spice, quite pleasant. Taste is also plenty of ripe banana, plenty of mineral, some oak, and a hint of sweetness. Aftertaste is a bit short with dominant minerals. Quite direct tasting experience and she deserves some good scores.
