I've had a weird relationship with this wine where I passed on the vintage when I first had it because the reductive qualities were too intense... A 6 months later I was loving it for it's tension and verve. Now here we are basically a year later and the reduction is essentially gone. The fruit has really come out and you can definitely sense the character of the 2015 vintage. I barrel tasted the 2016 which will be coming out soon and I think it's going to be even better! These are honestly some of the best domestic chardonnay I've tasted in my wine career.

The future of domestic Chardonnay. I wasn't even too hot on this when it was released, but now the reduction is peeling away and it's obviously great.
