Aaron:  This was a bit musky on the nose but featured an incredibly smooth, creamy flavor (my preference).  There was tons of buttery cashew on the flavor and I didn’t get much fruit but found some noticeable sparks of metal (possibly derived from the ceramic bottle).  I also felt there was just a hint of mint.  89 points

Teri: First of all, thank you to our friend Bill who gifted us this wine! I am a huge lover of unaoked chardonnays and this bottle just reinforces my fandom. You wouldn’t think you were drinking a chard from its buttery acidic and lemon nose, but the full flavors of butter, walnut, grapefruit, and hints of rose make you want another sip. The wine is complex and full and great to enjoy by itself or paired with seafood, summer salads, and cheeses. I would recommend this for wine enthusiasts and a select few new wine lovers who want to try something new and bold. The bottle is also ceramic, making this unique and memorable. 91 points
