A fav! Had another bottle! Wine bears vineyard named to honor the Red-shouldered Hawks & other birds of prey that play a vital role in sustainable farming practices. Golden with aromas of tropical fruits and sweet floral scents. Aged for 14 months, 75% in new French oak and 25% in stainless. A rich Chard, the palate shows sweet melon, pineapple and peach flavors and citrus notes, subtle yet complex and well balanced. Lingering finish, savory, ending with mineral tones and creamy toasty oak. Outstanding!

If I had to drink a wine with this much oak, I would not choose this.

Part of the fun of wine are the different styles. It's very pretty, stylish with with richness offset perfectly by fresh acidity.

Buttery texture, lemon and herbs. A better choice than the Rombauer Chardonnay.
