Delivers a complex mix of subtle fruit and oak flavors, with ripe pear and apple notes and light creamy oak accents. Most pleasing on the finish, where the flavors weave together. Drink now.

This is a big, fruity, oaky Chardonnay. What it lacks in subtlety it makes up for in sheer power. The flavors of apricots, tangerines and limes, with smoky oak influences, are rich and forward.
