2008 Ponzi Chardonnay Reserve Willamette Valley 14% $26

This has a decided orange marmalade note on the nose that is followed by rather clear but light oak tones and layers of lemon curd, peach, heather and spicy floral tones. Round and lush, this has a very vivid core of citrus fruits supported by vibrant acids. The flavors are clear and bright. There’s lemon and a bit of kumquat, with a lovely low and soft wash of wood spice and some pressed floral and earthy tones that give the long finish nice nuance. A rather restrained and bright style that is distinctly appealing. 90pts
