California, Chardonnay, Santa Cruz Mountains, USA


Pale yellow , clear color. Lemon peel nose with crushed rock, white flowers and maybe a hint of toasted nuts. Fresh on the palate with loads of lemon curd and minerality. Finish is long and has lemon meringue pie. Love this wine and it’s very atypical for California Chardonnay. Highly recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
