2009 Sanford Chardonnay Santa Barbara CA 14.5% $

 

Very subdued on the nose with earth, honeycomb and toasted oat tones accented by a touch of butterscotch, some dried floral notes, and light orchard fruit. Very well balanced in the mouth, this hints at ripeness with a soft and almost sweet edge. The acids pull the ripeness back, revealing a nutty, oaked edge, crisp apricot and citrus fruit, and a light lashing of oak spice that adds perfume to the mouth. The finish is long, soft and subtle, with a lovely candied almond note on the finale. This is very restrained and rather refined. A lovely, subtle and elegant Chardonnay that reveals its detail slowly. 91pts
