94 Wine Advocate (8/2013) "Focusing on old vines, the 2011 Chardonnay Old Guard is Chablis-like with it green-tinged color, searing oyster shell-like minerality, citrus blossom and lime aromas and flavors. It, too, is laser-focused on the palate and needs another year or two to unwind. Incredibly impressive, few wines show this level of tension and energy. Drink 2014-2019."
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (7/2013) "A fascinating contrast to the Vanguard, the 2011 Chardonnay Old Guard is much more airy, precise and delicate. Hints of lemon, pastry and white stone fruits all flow in a Chardonnay that stands out for its pure class and personality. Bright, saline-infused notes support the finish. This is a first-class showing. The 2011 was aged 68% in neutral oak and 32% in steel, with partial malolactic fermentation (25%) and weekly batonnage."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue. We are 200 feet to the west of Ulta Cosmetics and around 200 yards southeast of the Hollywood Palms Cinema. The layout of the center is a bit confusing so just give us a call if you need directions.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
