Smith Madrone Chardonnay 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight, lean and somewhat reticent on the nose with a nice butchers wax top note over ripe, soft peach, orange and apple fruits. On the palate there's some nutty oak here and a touch of wood tannin under the core of fairly ripe fruit that shows hints of apple butter and rich, sweet almond-tinged apple fruit. The texture is a touch softer than the 2010, showing a little slippery edge on the long finish along with the lush fruit. 91pts
