This is second vintage to come exclusively from the Martinelli Charles Ranch, two miles in from the Pacific, aged for 12 months in 25% new oak. Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone fruits with wafts of blossom and spice. On the palate rich ripe apple and pear with a touch of zesty citrus fruits, crisp, with big vanilla notes. Nice mouthfeel, vivid acidity, medium+ finish ending with fruit, vanilla and citrus mineral character. Nice! Tried twice.

Double decant and pour. A wicked light gold color. On the nose: apple, lemon, honey blossom, mandarin, and subtle vanilla oak. Taste: A creamy, rich medium plus body wine with pineapple, apple, minerals, crushed rocks, and honey. A fresh medium plus finish. Going great with raw hamachi crudo on this Saturday night. Cheers!

Lemon curd. Honey suckle. Vanilla oak too. Taste of pear like to have a touch more acid. But finish has nice tangy

What a wonderful wine. Lemon and brioche nose. Lively with nice acid, sneaky richness and great finish. David sure knows how to make Chardonnay

Very yellow compared to other ca chargonays. Light oak, Tasted a bit flat... didn’t enjoy it.
