Wow. I hope I am not given to hyperbole, but this is seriously one of the most delicious California Chardonnays I have ever tasted. Brilliant on the palate, somewhat flinty, tingly. Perfectly dry, perfectly balanced, an nearly perfect wine!

Vintage: 2010 01/27/2012

A very exceptional and rare Chardonnay from California's Central Coast. The San Francisco Chronicle described it as "Ripe pear, tropical fruit and mandarin orange aromas and flavors; moderately rich, with a lovely lift and just enough sweet, creamy oak. A slight mineral edge on the lengthy crisp finish makes this a versatile food wine."

Vivid yellow. Vibrant aromas of melon, honey, fig, nectarine and oak spice. At once juicy and dense, with lively honeydew, lemon curd ginger flavors. Finishes dry and firm, with very good energy and spicy persistence.

A very exceptional and rare Chardonnay from California's Central Coast. The San Francisco Chronicle described it as "Ripe pear, tropical fruit and mandarin orange aromas and flavors; moderately rich, with a lovely lift and just enough sweet, creamy oak. A slight mineral edge on the lengthy crisp finish makes this a versatile food wine." And Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 96 points saying "You want decadence, opulence and fabulosity in your Chardonnay? This one’s for you. It’s tremendous in ripe pineapple, pear, peach, mango, lime, tangerine and papaya flavors. So much fruit, while the oak application is never heavy handed, applying just the right touch of buttered toast. Where does all that vanilla honey come from? A magnificent example of a first-growth California Chardonnay, at a great price." Extremely Limited!

Winemaker's Notes:

91-93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): An exotic, intriguing Chardonnay, the 2012 Bien Nacido Vineyard Block UU wraps around the palate with an appealing melange of tropical fruit, jasmine, spices and mint. The aromas and flavors are quite extroverted, yet the 2012 remains a delicate, mid-weight Chardonnay built first and foremost on finesse. Today, it is shaping up to be a drop-dead beauty. I tasted the 2012 just before it was bottled. Drink: 2013-2019. (Jul 2013)
