Pale lemon in color.

Fruity nose of citrus, lemons, honeydew, light oak, honeysuckle, apples, light vanilla and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, apples, ripped pears, oak, vanilla, spices and white pepper.

Nice length on the finish with lemons.

This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Russian River Valley. Easy drinking and good by itself. A good sipping wine.

Nicely balanced with a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

A great value and good by the pool or beach.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in 75% French and Hungarian Oak barrels. Aged on its lees for 6 months.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Rich, layered, with telltale burnt butter, hazelnut and apple tart. Perfect drinking age. V long finish. A top drawer Chardonnay.

Pale lemon, simple wine with stone fruit aromas carries to palate with ripe apple and pineapple flavors. Nothing harsh about this wine which should please a crowd at a holiday party or BBQ. Not complex, drink now. Good value.
