A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Great value in a very fine example of musque, with the florality of this chardonnay clone nicely contained and layered. It's mid-weight, balanced, just barely off-dry. Love the restrained vanillin, green banana, peachy fruit. This [is] very elegant wine, with very good to excellent length. Score - 90 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Dec. 22, 2016) Price $ 16.95
