2009 Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 14.5% $16

Papaya and fennel seed greet the nose followed by notes of mint, pollen and pears. This has an unusual set of aromas, but they are intriguing. Nicely full in the mouth, yet this has a glassy tautness on the palate. The fruit is subtle, showing some gentle wood influences of spice and vanilla, but it remains rather bright and clear. This finishes with a nice, refreshing wash of apple skins and lime zest, along with some toasty spice notes. Everything is very well balanced, rich but not weighty.  89pts
