This wine—a blend of steel-fermented and barrel-fermented lots—hides the oak well, displaying nicely pure melon, pear and citrus flavors that finish clean and refreshing. It’s a balanced and easy-to-drink Chardonnay for drinking over the next 6–12 months.
Shows decent weight and concentration, but plays a bit of a one-note tune, primarily lemony citrus flavors. There's a hint of flintiness to teh nose and an orangey, pith-like tinge to the finish.
Perhaps this is starting to tire? There’s a slightly waxy dullness to the wine’s otherwise interesting citrus aromas, while the flavors of lemon and white grapefruit are pleasant without being captivating. Drink up.
This wine shows some intriguing complexity in its herbal, leafy aromas tinged with woodsmoke and berries. It’s medium-bodied, with tart berry flavors and some slightly astringent, tea-like notes on the finish. Drink now–2012.
