smooth and clean. slight smoke, soft floral flavor, went wonderfully with our fish dinner!
Hey, hey, Chardonnay! Here's one way to introduce your palate to the world of California Chard. The nose is big butter, baked apple, and lemon meringue; the tongue gets sturdy oak, vanilla, and the smoked-then-candied peels of several orchard fruits.
Little hints of fruit like pear and annoying amounts of oak. The fruit is extremely under ripe. The vanilla was over powering. So much that was basically all I could taste! This is an awful wine given the fact that I enjoyed past bottles from this winery. This was tasted in a blind taste test with other wines. Easily the worst one. Maybe next year will be better.
