Very very oaky wine. Lots of spice from that. Some light floral notes. Fine, but a total oak bomb. Read more

Cool ocean breezes allow for a long, even ripening season, making Santa Barbara County an ideal place for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This Chardonnay is remarkably concentrated and complex.
