The slightly richer and more ambitious of the Carmel Road pair this weighty well-ripened Chardonnay combines extracted ripe apple fruit with a full dose of sweet oak and hints at peach and pineapple here and there. A touch uneven insofar as it tightens up at the end after starting out on a rounded slightly glyceriny note it has the fruity depth to win endorsement even if it does not fully smooth out over time. Connoisseurs Guide.
Soft floral and white peach notes greet you on the nose. The palate is also soft and smooth, with light fruity hints of pear and kumquat. On the finish, there is a touch of butter with some mineral and nutty flavors.
I was impressed with Carmel Road's 2008 Chardonnay Monterey. With a light greenish hue to its color and loads of tropical fruit intermixed with a hint of orange blossom, this medium-bodied Chardonnay is not as weighty as the Arroyo Seco, but it's tasty in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, cool-climate style.
Shows off a mix of light creamy oak, with green apple, pear, honeydew melon and spice, ending with an elegant finish. Drink now.
Very ripe and new oaky, but the acidity is so vibrant, it provides that much-needed balanced kick. Flavor-wise, this Chard is a blast of orange Slurpee, pineapple tart, vanilla crème brûlée and cinnamon spice. it sure is an easy wine to drink.
