    "Complex and well-crafted, especially at this price point. Tropical fruit, some taost and texture, good persistence and the right balancing acidity." - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, July 2011

    tasting notes

    Aromas of vanilla, toasted oak and golden apples lead to flavors of Asian pear, passion fruit and kumquat. This Chardonnay has a lingering finish of lime zest, pineapple and graphite with a hint of cedar.
