Slightly oaky, caramelly nose. However, introduction to the palate is very bright—hint of melon flavor, but the dominant sensation is acid tartness that is very close to lemony. Melon, again seems to dominate the aftertaste. I can see why lovers of buttery/oaky chardonnays would not care for this. To me this is a terrific sipping wine, but I am also looking forward to having it with grilled tuna, tonight.

Not particularly spectacular. Medium to high acidity for a chard. Messy finish. No oak noticable in the mouth. Nice aroma of recently sliced mellon. I was disapointed considering the price and the fact that I love so much of this wine from this winery.

Our 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay offers delightfully fragrant, slightly yeasty aromas of ripe pear, apple and guava fruit complemented by hints of honeysuckle, mineral and toasted oak. It likewise hits the mark on the palate, delivering sensationally concentrated pear, spiced apple and melon flavors that culminate in a long finish lifted by zesty spice and mineral tones. Bold and beautifully balanced, with great depth and breadth of flavor, our 2012 Chardonnay is a delicious expression of a picture-perfect vintage. It will continue to please over the next 3-5 years. - WineryBarrel Aging: 8 months sur lie in French oak barrels, 20% new, with periodic stirring of the leesAlcohol Content: 14.2%Total Acidity: 0.73 g/100 mlPH: 3.45
