Aaron: This was pretty good; a strong white peach nose grew through the nostrils on oaky branches.  A slight citrus and spiced honey flavor keeps the drinker guessing while olive notes coat tree bark and white fruits.  Worth a try.  89 points

Teri: A little bird told me that Sparrow Hawk gets it’s grapes from Cakebread, intriguing me further to try this bottle knowing of its great start. Sparrow Hawk make a pleasant Chardonnay that leans more towards the dryer side than a full buttery white. The smooth lemon, citrus, and honey on the taste complement its beautiful bouquet of green apple and hibiscus. I found this overall complex with a long finish and give it 90 points complexity and depth of flavor.
