Very pretty light goldish straw color. Nose of vanilla egg custard and golden apples. The mouth is more lively and the apples are greener with lemon curd, fig, and a hint of toffee. This showed nicely and had good, if not great acid lift in back.
This is one the few Cali Chards I buy … great vineyard & winemaker.
It was good, but having had now the '08 and '09, not truly great either. I’d rather have Stony Hill or Mt. Eden. I did really enjoy it, but may not buy again at this money. Of course, I said the same last year.
this was a crowd pleaser tonight, the 2009 had some nice fruit against the oak, all in all a decent wine, wish they made more
We where huge fans of this tonight (Thanks for opening Reff). Good fruit, notes of oak and vanilla there but restrained and what I thought was a nice strain of minerality on the back end. Lovely wine!
