Wow, what a Chard from California's King of Chardonnay. The 2012 vintage has a generous, creamy nose, and on the palate so crisp with an amazing purity of fruit with very little oak to get in the way. Aged in French oak, using indigenous yeasts, from 100% Chardonnay grapes.

Blind tasting. This is the one that surprised the hell outta me. Very clean, minimal oak and great minerality.

Haven't had it in a long time. Loaded with lemon. Definitely a branded flavor Chardonnay that has not changed in the many years since I had it last. Let's call this a trip down memory lane.

Tropical fruits rich and creamy with just a touch of oak. Great with homemade Chicken Picante. Has good acidity and minerality. This chard really compliments with the food . CB 92+

The nose throws me every time on this bottle, a little Burgundian with stemmy, grape seed notes, little oak influence, mild citrus. Buy this and hold for only a few years for a reward. Not your typical Napa style. @David T saw your notes on this vintage, maybe consider a little more bottle age? I do consider this a pretty good value for CA, delivering the above notes for $35 and two years in our cellar.

Excellent. Perfect amount of oak and butter. A little lighter

Tropical with pineapple on the nose; crisp green apple with a hint of lemon on the palate. Great with the chicken paillard we had with it.
