La Crema Chardonnay Nine Barrell Russian River Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight nose with early notes of well judged wood followed by tight apple and pear fruit, and a little sweet apple pie spice character. Opening with a nice edge of green apple snappiness that leads to a nicely focused mid-palate, this shows lots of white stone fruit and apple character laced with marshmallow and vanilla flavors. The finish shows good length with a suggestion of tannin and fine mineral and apple blossom accents. Deftly blending fruit and tension, this looks as though it should improve over the medium term. 92pts
