Natalie's Score: 90/100

This full-bodied white wine is so classically made at such a terrific price! Die-hard Chardonnay lovers will embrace this wine, but so too will other white wine drinkers because it’s not heavy in oak or alcohol. Lovely green apple and melon aromas with a seductive weave of vanilla smoke.

Reviews and Ratings

Sandra rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lise gave this to me for my 50th birthday
From the oldest winery in Washington State, and one that has garnered significant popular and critical acclaim. Buttered toast, coconut oil, grilled pineapple and peach cobbler notes on the nose. Made in a popular style that puts some emphasis on oak. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, Nov. 2013.
