Great mouth feel. Flavors of butter, baked apple and apricot. A gorgeous, full bodied Chardonnay. Very elegant.

Not my cup of tea, but I respect the focus on a particular style.

Medium lemon. Aromas are smoke, brewer's yeast, and green apple. Flavors of butter and pear. M+ acidity. Dry. Full body wine with a long finish of bread and butter. Above average but a bit expensive for a Thursday evening run about. Pair with a special meal... thinking lobster with butter. Go for it.

coconut milk, melon, guava, and fennel. creamy and fresh with a fair amount of soft oak, and a bit of spice to add allure - maybe cardamom and hint of clove? paired nicely with some cedar plank grilled salmon. i'd also try an asparagus risotto

Aromatic, creamy, and rich. Lacks the buttery profile synonymous with some Cali chards but maintains a richness that begs second glass.
