If America had grand cru designations, this would be in the first rank. Can't wait to see it years down the road. Age worthy in a way many whites wish they could be. What Chardonnay, in an ideal world, should always taste like.

Taking a virtual tour of Sonoma while dining at one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. This is the white wine for dinner; look for the red wine rating as well. Bright creamy bold Sonoma Chardonnay. Atypical tropical flavors present tonight, with a hint of quince on the finish. This wine is in a lovely place. Very enjoyable. Bravo!! One of the very few domestic Chardonnay wines that is age worthy.

I enjoyed this wine. The time in bottle has treated it well. The finish had a touch of toasted bread and creaminess.

Creamy yet zesty. Lemon curd and pear. Richly textured and finishes clean.

Love this Chard. Tangerine, Meyer lemon, and well balanced. Showed a little less complex but probably because it was drank a bit colder than usual to keep us refreshed on the patio.

A fairly rich Chardonnay with quite a baby fat. But you can taste the great fruit underlying.

We had this on 2/18-19/17. Line, pear and apricot on the palate. A tartness on the finish. Not the oaky, buttery CA Chard. Maybe more Burgundian. Got this as a gift but not worth the price.
