Lemon curd on the nose, buttery with lots of citrus fruits on the palate

Nice light amber color, full bodied and just enough fruit. Clean and nice butter on the palate. Very much enjoyed.

You don't always have to pay a lot for Napa! New vintage. Nice restraint, oak kept in check. Crisp, humming acidity. Nice marriage of oak barrel and stainless steel preparation.

Refined oak but plenty of fruit, especially pear.

Very subtle to almost indistinguishable oakiness. Can be drank without food.

Decent Chardonnay...pear..apple..vanilla...I planned on celebrating my 100th wine differently..but the day had it's turn of events!! So if anyone is familiar with Hyvee FuelSavers in the Midwest...this bottle was maybe $12..with the 30 cents off per gallon on FuelSavers!! I suppose that basically a "free" botlle is a celebration indeed!!🙄
