Aaron: This is a great bottle, especially if you like rich buttery chardonnays. A little white strawberry and peaches found their way through a fruit-crowded nose. I noticed mild, buttered popcorn and some bits of citrus fruit but the overpowering flavor is rich, nutty vanilla. After a few moments your pallet is flooded with cashew butter and streaks of vanilla beans. This has some sugarcane but isn’t “sweet”, definitely a worthwhile bottle. 90 points
Teri: Citrus and apple on the nose with bright and fruity flavors overall. I tasted banana, caramel, vanilla, and lemongrass. Long beautiful finish. A wonderful bottle and unique to give/share with those who are unfamiliar with unoaked chardonnays. A bottle for those who like bright fruit flavors in their wines. 90 points
