I’m not a big pro at white wines but wanted something refreshing to sit outside with to enjoy today’s cooler weather. I normally like unoaked Chardonnays but I do like Francis Coppola wines so thought I’d try this one. It’s very dry with tropical fruit tastes. Has a nice long finish that makes you want the next sip. Now all I need is some sharp white cheese and crackers!

One of my Fave Chard’s....Very Smooth!
And still tastes great after 4 yrs in my collection, evidence by my bottle!!

We loved the oak, and enjoyed watching the legs grow long. It paired well with some amazing spiced cod.

A good stock wine. Nothing fancy. A little dry but not overly so. Nothing stands out but nothing detracts, either. Somewhat better on its own than with food, IMO.

Smooth and rich start with a lightly citrus finish
