2010 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Chardonnay 14.5% $18

This greets the nose with notes of fresh cream, lime, a pinch of nutmeg and vanilla, all over deeply layered fruit. Pretty rich on the palate with supporting acids, this definitely makes in impression. There’s a fine creaminess to the texture here. Crème brûlée notes on the palate support flavors of ginger, pineapple and pithy citrus fruits. This is very well balanced, there are no edges and the oak plays a supporting role right through the moderately long apple and grapefruit pith finish, ending with a burst of bright spiciness. This is a bit more Chardonnay than I prefer in my glass but the quality is undeniable. 91pts
