Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This classic Sonoma County Chardonnay displays bright aromas of lemon cream, mango and notes of toasted hazelnut. The generous fruit flavors of pear and melon on the palate provide a rich mouthfeel which is nicely balanced by cleansing acidity. This wine has a subtle elegance with a lingering finish.

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

This wine starts out with great lemon and melon notes but finishes with a tasty little butterscotch snap. It does a great job of balancing the fruit with the oak, and is delicious with coconut shrimp.
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Toasty oak with lots apple and butter aromas with replays on palate. Some melon flavours also shine through the vanilla on the long finish. Very new world style of Chardonnay. Could be aged at least another 3 years. Tasted Sept/2012.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
