Gallo Signature Series Chardonnay 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Complex aromas of sandy soil, sweet, toasty oak and flowers add complexity to the core of baked apple and lime fruit. Supple and rather opulent in the mouth, this combines power and a creamy texture with rather fresh green apple and citrus flavors all supported by toasty oak spice and a nice mineral base. There's a lot going on here and while the alcohol does intrude a bit this does have a really attractive texture, creamy on the palate then firm and slightly mineral on the medium length finish. Checks all the boxes. 90pts

Offers a subtle mix of green apple, pear, spice and honeydew melon, maintaining focus and ending with a delicate, persistent finish and touch of smoked meat. Drink now through 2016.

The 2010 Chardonnay Russian River, which comes mostly from the Laguna Ranch, is 100% Chardonnay aged primarily in French oak. This limited production cuvee (3,300 cases) possesses 14.4% natural alcohol and is all barrel fermented with 100% malolactic and lees aging. It exhibits copious aromas of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pears and buttered citrus in a medium to full-bodied, fresh, ripe format. Drink it over the next several years.
