Press and Tasting Notes

"Lemon oil, white flowers and stone fruit define this lovely Chardonnay. The aromatics develop on the rich, balanced palate into waves of lively citrus, freshly baked bread, and clove. This is a fresh, zesty wine that will continue to deliver pleasure for the next 3-4 years." - California Wine Advisors

THE REVIEW

This under $40 Chardonnay impressed not only the critics, but more importantly...us!
    If you haven't heard of IPOB, you will. IPOB or "In Pursuit Of Balance" is a shift in the California winemaking scene. An elite group of up-and-comers is creating terroir driven wines, a departure from the extracted and oaky wines of the incumbents.
     With balance, restraint, and finesse, these new wines are singlehandedly redefining the California winescape for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
    One member, winemaker Justin Willett, outshines the other reigning stars of the Santa Barbara region. What's Justin got that the other's lack? An undeniable gift to capture the complex flavors and minerality of his Chardonnay.
    Once you try this succulent white, you'll understand why Willett was recently recognized as one of the top 40 under 40 winemakers: "Lemon oil, white flowers and stone fruit define this lovely Chardonnay. The aromatics develop on the rich, balanced palate into waves of lively citrus, freshly baked bread, and clove. This is a fresh, zesty wine that will continue to deliver pleasure for the next 3-4 years." California Wine Advisors
    By the way, if you are a fan of pretty and elegant Burgundian style Pinot, you need to try Tyler's 95 pt Pinot Noir! And certainly, don't be afraid to order them both - they are that good.Read More »
