Brought this wine along, along with several others, to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend. Here's some bias: we served this at our wedding. It is rich and voluptuous. Some tropical notes but beautifully balanced. For a while some subscribed to the ABC approach to wine selection: "Anything but Chardonnay". This well made, remarkably good value, delicious wine from Sonoma should remind anyone with such a philosophy of the error in their ways. A little gem.

Rich, full beautiful Chardonnay with classic notes of butter and vanilla. Good acid.
