San Francisco Chronicle

(March 2009)

Wine Advocate

(August 2008)

2007 Chardonnay: "The 2007 Chardonnay is light gold in color... The nose offers some oak notes and aromas of white peach and pear. This leads to a smooth-textured wine with an excellent layering of apple and pit fruit flavors with a hint of tropical fruits in the background. Balanced and medium-long, this nicely-made Chardonnay is meant for drinking over the next 1-2 years."
