This is a very flamboyant Chardonnay. The grapes are superripe in pie-filling pineapples, nectarines and oranges, enhanced with smoky oak and sweet buttered popcorn, but the finish is completely dry. Drink now with rich fare, like lobster and shellfish.
What went wrong in the making of this wine was excessive sugar. It's so sweet, it's off-dry, a serious flaw in a table wine, and a disservice to consumers who expect a Sauvignon Blanc to be dry.
