2009 Schug Chardonnay Carneros 14.5% $26


Toasty oak and tropical fruits greet the nose, laden with vanilla and fig accents. Big yet super bright in the mouth, this has bags of acid lending the palate a rather fresh, citrussy character, which compliments the vanilla and creamy ripe pineapple notes very well. There’s such a refreshing lime streak here that it’s hard not to like. The almond milk notes on the back end lead into a fresh and crisp fruit finish which gains support for very subtle oak spice. This is delightfully deceptive. Really expected an oakier, thicker wine from the nose, but the palate delivers freshness and succulent fruit. 92pts
