2009 Alma Rosa Chardonnay Santa Barbara Co 13.9% $19

Green apple fruit, gentle wood spice, a floral element and sandy soil tones join a touch of coconut on the nose. This is very restrained on entry. Interesting because it delivers rich, ripe fresh fruit a bit later on the mid-palate with fine, bright acids keeping this very focused. The texture is slightly creamy, yet remains taut with lovely intensity to the green apple, green spice, floral, mineral and gently nutty oak flavors that ride through the moderately long finish. Light on the palate. The way it grows in the mouth is fascinating. A bit gauzily textured, with a bit of Chablis at it’s core. 90pts
