Our Review

The flowers and toast come through first, followed by the fresh fruit and the crisp texture. The oak, which is evident in the aromas and flavors, is in the background, but the wine is also a bit one-dimensional and lacks some of the fruit richness that the winery's regular Chardonnay could offer. It's a medium-bodied, well-made wine that is best from 2007 through 2016.
