This wine playfully swings across my palate from the supple, round lows to the bright, angular highs. These Chardonnays are like that little child who quietly waits for the precise moment to tell their story, and when their words begin to flow, we find ourselves blissfully captivated amidst the twists and turns and realize that the story wouldn’t have been nearly so delightful had we rushed the speaker.

Crisp, clean, delicious. Napa Grand Cru Chard at its best.

Outstanding. Neutral oak lets the wine really come through. Evolving in a really nice way.

Great Napa Chardonnay. Great color, wonderful nose with soft tropical fruits. Great sense of terroir in this wine. Medium plus finish. Could drink this all the time!

Delicious, still a straw color despite the age, great balance of fruit and acidity. First time tried, wow.
