Pretty good yet average sauv blanc. Grass/hay,lemon,honey mouthfeel. It did, however, pair very nicely with the spicy Chinese take out! - 10/05/2009

I probably opened this way too early but it was still good! It does have a light mouth feel. Tasted like peppered plums wrapped in dirt - 08/27/2009

The Viognier at Picchetti is one of their highlights. Clean, refreshing - slight apricot/peach taste with a tad of butterscotch. It paired *extremely* well with the Thai dinner we had with it! - 08/23/2009

This is a really wonderful Chardonnay - nothing fancy, it just does its job. Beautiful straw-like color. The taste is wonderful - very like oak, popcorn butter - actually maybe more like butterscotch? - some citrus, nice acid. Nice lingering finish. - 08/12/2009

Smells & tastes like Welch's white grape & peach juice, but better. Nice acid on the backend. Very light mouthful. Alcohol tasted hotter as bottle warmed up. For its price point, not bad at all - drink cold on a warm summer day. - 08/10/2009

**from winery website:

In 2006, we had a very small crop at Gold Coast Vineyard. Our Chardonnay produced 1.3 tons per acre and the resulting wine is intense in its aromatics, flavor, and texture. As always, we whole-cluster pressed the harvested grapes and put the juice into Francois Freres French oak barrels (25% new) for fermentation. Malolactic was allowed in barrel, and the wine aged sur lie (on its sediment or lees) for 10 months before racking and the blend assembled. The wine was lightly fined and cold stabilized before returning to barrel for an additional 2 months (total barrel aging 12 months). Bottled in early September 2007. 1000 cases produced.

The wine is a rich yellow/gold in color, with aromatics of pears, nutmeg, barrel toast, and ocean mist. Rich in texture, the flavors include spiced apple, pear, and vanilla bean. The wine finishes with a burst of pineapple, citrus and mineral flavors, balanced with good acidity. - 07/17/2009
