With a hefty case production, the wine is light and thin, but there are pleasant enough flavors. It’s average Chardonnay, with just enough appley fruit, oak and sweetness to satisfy. It’s clean and well-made, and there’s not much more you can say about it.
Usually a trusted producer of red wines, but this wine seems weak and diluted, even unripe. There are sharp green, minty aromas and flavors that are almost vegetal, and wipe out the blackberries. The wine is also thin on the palate and into the finish. From a good vintage, but with 24,000 cases, maybe they overcropped the vines.
A little less than ripe, it’s got hints of blackberries but really veers toward an earthy herbaceousness. There’s a cut of greenness in the aroma, and in the flavors, too. Finishes a bit rough and thin.
