Drank on Qatar Airways. Aromas of citrus and vanilla oak - the latter a fraction too high for my palate but overall a better than acceptable Chardonnay. Had a 2nd glass so must have liked it!

100% Chardonnay fermented in French oak, which gives a district aroma of creme fraîche and buttery rustic mushrooms. The palate is a nice contrast with a fresh acidity and predominate fruit flavors of yellow apple and Meyer lemon. All in all a well balanced Chardonnay that paired perfectly with homemade Valentine's dinner of salmon en papillote with zucchini and a lemon basil compound butter. ($17) [2/14/19]

The oak flavor is apparent and it has the right about of buttery taste to set the taste buds off. Higher alcohol content than most Chardonnays

chalk and ripe soft fruits on the nose... mild peach or nectarine... label says yellow apple and pie spices, balanced oak and minerals with a good body, a lingering of baking spiciness. smooth easy drinking!

Typical Sonoma chard with crisp acidity and fruits leaning towards the greener side such as green apple and lime. Mineral and toasted nuts too. Palate is sharp yet supple. Very good value for around $16.00.

Balanced Sonoma chardonnay. Good value. Enjoyed it. It is not heavy or over-oaked.
