2008 Byron Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay California 14.5% $15

This smells a bit of soil and rocks, with notes of pressed flowers and dried banana peel over nutty dried apple fruit. Bright in the mouth yet showing an edge of creaminess on the mid-palate. Notes of butterscotch and crème brûlée accent the modest core of apple and pear fruit. The oak influence is obvious but sweet here, and that sweetness really pops on the finish where this wine kicks things into another gear. Really strong fruit, nut and oak spice finish is lovely. 89pts
