Light and bright. Balanced acid, creaminess, and lemony zip. Delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day.

I like these on the younger side and this was showing well.

Same notes as the last ‘15. These are still awfully young, several hours open helped the fruit profile open up tremendously.

First of the ‘15 chards. This is every bit as good as previous vintages. Light and bright, perfect acidity and a creamy finish. Don’t serve it too cold!

Pretty Chardonnay, lemon, waxy, fresh, new oak toastiness on the finish

Searing acid, lean, tart Granny Smith apple, grippy woodsy texture, and heavy toasty oak.

Just incredibly good value. Lots of depth for a (single vineyard) appellation blend. Very light with the oak touch and full of cool climate goodness. Creamy, but not buttery with golden apple and lychee. Solid acidity to hold everything in place. Good for at least 4-5 more years.

An "appellation" wine that is secretly a single vineyard wine. The fruit here is world class and the wine is just phenomenal. If this was made from the lesser barrels I can't wait to taste the Bearwallow designate of this.
