Green apple, green pear, underripe tropical fruits, slight vanilla. For the price, this wine is a bargain and delicious.

Hits way above its price! All that I want in a Cali Chard; lemon and mineral driven; light and refreshing.

Oyster shell, river rock, white flower aromas and lemon, mineral, nice acidity and balance, Chablis like crispness. I have had quite a recent run with Central Coast Cali chardonnays (Alesia, Liquid Farms, Arnot-Roberts, Tyler) that are delicious and incredibly well priced.
