2009 Trefethen Chardonnay Oak Knoll District Napa Valley 13.5% $26

Nutty, smoky and vanilla toned on the nose, though not particularly sweet smelling. Fruit shows hints of kiwi, peach and Asian pear. This is rather elegant on entry. It’s taut and rich, with a fine vein of acidity lending lift in the mouth, but stays within the soft, enveloping blanket of yellow fruits, peach skin and lemon pith fruit that’s wrapped up in creamy, vanilla and crème brûlée oak. Lovely balance and a sense of refinement here, though the finish is a bit clipped. With air, this lengthens a bit, I’m sure it just needed a little more to show its all. Nicely done. 91pts
