There is a lot going on in this excellent Chardonnay already, though it struck me as needing another year or two to really hit its stride. Richly flavored and powerful in the mouth, showing ripe apple, lime, and peach fruit along with spicy vanilla overtones, and even a touch of honey. Fairly voluptuous already, and it will only get better. - HK 2015-08-22

[HK  2015-12-18] Gorgeous wine in this most recent tasting. No closed features here - ripe, fresh, balanced, mouth-filling. Really top-notch.  User Rating: 92.
