Alpha Omega Chardonnay Napa Valley Beth 2007

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

On the nose- honeysuckle, pineapple, pear, banana and a hint of grass, citrus and green apple, butterscotch and ginger. On the palate- round velvety mouthfeel with fresh grapefruit, minerality, caramel, tangerine and apricot. Still awesome! - Tasted at the winery 4/19/10

Big nose of toasted hazelnut. Nice layers on the palate of fig, melon and baked apple. If feels like a red on the palate. Nutty, tropical fruits. Dense and layered with the slightest hint of butterscotch on the finish. So good! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/29/10

91 points. This wine is very attractive in the glass, and the nose is somewhat lemony, and very delicately oaky. There is a creaminess, complete with some kitchen spices, a nice kick of clove, and vanilla. It’s kind of like warm apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream. It’s very nice, and there is also this sort of peach cobbler tone running through it, which makes the wine very cozy and inviting. It opens with apple crisp, some spiced custard, and a pretty strong assortment of flowers. I get some tropical fruit and honey, with a bit of a butteriness that almost becomes somewhat oily on the mid palate. This wine is ripe and thick with an incredible mouthfeel. It’s so smooth and lush, while still maintaining a lightness about it. This is not one of those heavy, overly oaked Chardonnays that seem to turn up everywhere. This wine has excellent structure, great depth, and very nice, fresh fruit like acidity. At nearly $50 a bottle, this isn’t a cheap wine, but I think that if you’re looking for a really nice Chardonnay from Napa, this one solidly competes with the big names in area, making it a wine worth trying.
