"A Complex chardonnay with notes of pear, mineral, vanilla, caramel and spice. Lush texture. Good acid. Lingering finish. Lovely."
"Marked by big, sharp acidity, like biting into a lime, and clean, linear flavors of limes, green apples and pineapples... Think of bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp, or a spicy Ahi tuna tartare dish."
"Here is a firm and very vital young Chardonnay that shows the desired virtues to be had when measured ripeness is met by cool-climate structure. Keenly focused on appley fruit and enriched by a careful complement of sympathetic oak, the wine is at once both deep and still tightly bound with glimmers of layering that point the way to great things with age. It can be enjoyed now with sundry seafoods, but the smart money says to wait for a few years."
