Rather floral on the nose and quite perfumed. Gentle leesy edges add nuance to the core of peach and almond toned fruit that has a distinctive cherry note to it. Unusual but attractive on the nose. Medium plus-bodied in the mouth with an early rush of lemon candy that settles into a baked apple and lemon groove on the mid-palate. This has a gently creamy edge and some suggestions of sweet nuttiness in the mouth, all supported by bright lemon curd flavors. This is pretty bright and mouth-filling. A good value in a style I can go for. 87pts

This smells exotically fruity with lots of pineapple, kiwi and yellow citrus fruit notes all buttressed with light oak spice and a streak of vanilla. Rich and very front-loaded, this enters the mouth like gangbusters but begins to fade rather quickly. What’s here is very attractive- pineapple, lime and very subtle oak influence yielding a rather refreshing and easy to enjoy wine. The acidity pops towards the back with pineapple and creamy oak notes before fading again on the modest finish. A little bit of a fruit bomb. 87pts

Our Chardonnays are known for their rich flavors, firm acidity and brilliant varietal flavors. But it is the pronounced minerality that sets them apart from their peers throughout the Golden State. Our 2010 Monterey Chardonnay offers a rich palate and crisp framework with tangerine peel aromas and tropical flavors of guava and pear with a touch of vanilla. The flavors are luscious, fruit forward and distinctly mineral thanks to our unique inner-coastal soils. The finish is crisp, structured and long. - WineryCOMPOSITION: 100% CHARDONNAYVINEYARD SOURCES: CLARK, PUENTE DEL MONTE, FRANSCIONI SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS, PORTERAPPELLATION : MONTEREYCLONES: 4, 809, Z, 96BARREL AGING: 5 MONTHS IN 67% FRENCH OA K (15% NEW), 16 % AMERICAN OAK (5% NEW) AND 17% STAINLESS STEEL TANKSALCOHOL: 13.5%PH: 3.47TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.59 G/100ML
