16’ Three Sticks Durell Chardonnay. Comes out swinging. Asian pear, lemon oil, key lime, trace of oak throughout the palate. Long lingering tart citrus finish that softens up with a bit of time in the glass. That tells me to wait a bit before opening my next bottle. -at dk Steakhouse Waikiki, Hawaii

Much better than the last bottle. Showing more complexity on all fronts. I get minerals, cream mixed with bright acidity and toasted bread notes on the front side. On the finish you still get a mild oak influence with pear and apricot.

Don Van Staaveren last vintage I believe before Bob Cabral took the wheel. I'm interested in how the former winemaker for William and Selyem will put his spin on Three Sticks. Chalk, straw and cream fill the nose. First thing that catches me is the acidity comes in high then smooths out. Slightly booze, with the taste of alcohol. Smoke and slight spice and charred marshmallow. Not much fruit. Finish comes and goes. Paired with Thai food, could have muddled the flavors.

2012 Vintage. This is a complex, Chard, with honey and melon aromas. It shows similar flavor profiles with a lingering finish

A very special taste of the 2005 Three Sticks Durell Chardonnay. Wow! Incredible nerve and brightness with golden, high toned fruit suppleness. Wow. Nice work, Don.
