3.5 stars "pretty classic Chardonnay with a deep golden color, a mild nose with notes of sweet white peach. On the palate, medium-bodied with butterscotch flavors and a fat mouthfeel. "

"Citrus aromas of tangerine and lime backed by a hint of toasted almonds. A silky, spicy mouth full of yellow plum and nutmeg finishes bright and long. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and the juice moved to French oak barrels (20% new) and fermented in barrel. Malolactic fermentation was spontaneous and 100%. Lees were stirred once a week for six months. After 18 months of barrel age the wine was moved with air to tank for blending then bottled by gravity. This wine has been aged in bottle for 6 months before its release."
