Federalist Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This Russian River Valley wine is everything you'd expect from a Chardonnay: ripe fruit, bright acidity, rich flavor and a long finish.

Quite elegant on the nose with flowers, apples and the perfume of well measured oak all come together in harmony. Bright, clean and fresh if ever so slight sweet on entry, this is a bit of a simple Chardonnay with attractive apple fruit and hints of almond and honeycomb oak adding appealing contrast but where it really wins is texturally. Both a bit slippery in the mouth and nicely bright and transparent this straddles a very fine line. The oak becomes a touch more pronounced and spicy on the backend before this fades away with spicy crab apple flavors and that touch of sweetness that makes the wood a bit sticky and odd tasting, but there is still something very attractive about this on the midpalate. This would show so much better with food, it is an oddly structured example of Chardonnay with just a hint of heat on the finish. 88pts

Lemon curd, Pear and cinnamon/clove spiciness. Good entrance with a rich mouth feel and long, lingering finish.
