Ok, so I thought the '11 was my favorite, but the '13 just knocked it off. Damn! The pure beauty of Chardonnay.

Easy to see why these guys were chosen to be judged alongside French burgundy benchmarks.

A classic, old world styled with lemon, ripe orchard/pit fruit and a hint of butterscotch. Seemed a touch disjointed initially but came together with air. Overshadowed by Asher’s bitchin’ socks (top left)

Amazingly good balance. It is appealing its ample fruity taste, citrus flavor and acidity @2800, XEric, 170921

Oaky over the top Napa chard! As expected. Going well with blue cheese.

Green apple and hazelnut. Well balanced acidity, abbreviated finish. My current fave. Digging this on the beach at Tahoe. Tough to beat.
