Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Intense popcorn, butter, caramel butter scotch, vanilla on the nose. Creamy, round, long butter and vanilla finish. This is a terrific oaked chardonnay if you really like the effects of lots of toasted oak (tendency to hide the fruit). I enjoy both unoaked delicate Chards, and really enjoy the opposite too, which this is. Great on its own, and would pair well with a wide variety of creamy, hearty, dishes. Baked beans, butternut squash soup, roasted chicken...
Tasted November 21, 2013.
