A perfect example of the frankly silly California style of Chardonnay, this wine succeeds in being both creamy AND buttery, with that extreme secondary malolactic fermentation.

I've had this twice. Two glasses each time. Woke up with a headache both times. That's what I get for forcing this swill down.

Nice tannin finish with a hint of smoky oak flavor. Would pair well with Salmon. Will purchase again.

Very light pear color. Smells like pear as well. Very balanced and smooth. Would be great with oysters
