Too weary to write proper notes. To my mind, one of the greatest producers in Oregon.

Much better than a year ago. Two more will wait another 6-12 months. Nice wine Burgundian matchstick. Has a weird note I can’t put my finger on. Adding weight in the cellar. // edit - I really prefer this on day two. I think the weird note is reduction, which resolves itself overnight. Score reflects day 2. Do not drink on day 1.

Tart green apple with hints of lemon. Very clean.

Only slightly reductive. Provides a nice punch.

Super reductive. Nutty, tight, flinty. Needs a long decant at this point. Day 2 turns into something quite special for the price point. Saltywaxy citrusy Oregon meets Chablis meets Jura.

Rich and round, but balanced with pronounced acidity. Notes of lemon, stone fruit, and white florals with a hint of nuttiness. Structured and mineral-driven. A top-notch domestic Chardonnay with Burgundian character. Purchased at Brooklyn Wine Exchange in Brooklyn, NY.

Clear straw color. Racy, nervy Chardonnay. White flowers, white peach, and wet stone.

Bright light gold, with medium-weight and viscosity. Sweet, ripe lemon-curd and just a hint of sulfur reduction. Lemon, lime, pear, ouzu, kiwi... really nice fruit basket and a long textured finish. These guys are killing it with Chardonnay... and this blend is just the beginning.
