Wine EnthusiastHoneyed crème brûlée flavor is the highlight of this salty, moderately structured wine that's fairly priced and simple in its approach.
Wine AdvocateOffering pronounced cedar, toast and fresh hay notes over a core of baked apples and pear tart, the 2015 Chardonnay has prominent oak notes on the medium-bodied palate with rather neutral apple flavors in the background and a woody finish.
