“This new discovery is a guaranteed winner for 'Old School' Chardonnay lovers as it reminds us of favorite vintages of Aubert, Pahlmeyer (originally from the same vineyard!), Ramey, and even Peter Michael. Captivating hints of toasted butterscotch and Hawaiian macadamia nuts come alive on the palate intertwined with notes of fresh peaches, creamy vanilla, minerals, lemon oil, and honeysuckle on the sumptuous finish. We highly recommend this under-the-radar winner as it is still way under-valued given the quality.” - California Wine Advisors
