This is fairly oaky on the nose, very modern smelling in that respect but at the same time there are some very fine sweet golden apricot and apple tones here adding depth. Bright and assertive on entry with mineral laden wood sweetened flavors of apricot and spice tinged greengage plums that are supported by cutting acidity. The backend shows off more of the mineral note as the wood receded a bit and the sweet apricot flavors take control of the palate. The wood reappears on the finish, in much more of a supporting role, and this ends with a long, bright apricot and nectarine flavor that has just a dusting of wood spice. This is a great change of pace for the chardonnay drinkers out there. 91pts
