I usually dig just about everything they do, but this was the exception. Just too much sweetness here. The confection was overbearing and did not let up on day two.

I don't always drink Chardonnay, but when I do it's Paul Lato! Beautiful aromas of ripe pear, mineral, fresh popcorn, Tahitian vanilla bean, and fresh cut grass. Great mouthfeel with fresh acidity and gorgeous fruit weight. Very well done.

Fantastic chard. Soft fuzzy peach, hints of vanilla, candied ginger and green apple. Great balancing acidity. More fruit than the 2011's. Superb with calamari, Caesar salad, carbonara, and salmon at Asti Trattoria, Austin.

Only had a sip and reminded me of something but could not put my finger on it. Enjoyable.

Somewhat oakey but not overly buttery. Hints of pear. Delicious.
