Nice, inviting deep yellow color - a distinctive sign of maturity. There is an evasive scent of vegetable-oak on the nose that is not out of place with many similar wines from California. More stewed stone fruit and oak on the palate with medium finish. Nice candied element that lingers. Nicely made in the Cali (or perhaps Southern France) style.

This wine was a challenge and, ultimately, a pleasure to review. The issue is that the winemaker was bold in the use of oak, aging the wine for 10 months on the lees in French oak – half new, half used. On the initial pass, the fruit and the oak flavours still seem a bit disjointed. It is nothing that three or four months of cellaring won’t resolve. This is a complex Burgundian-style wine.The aroma begins with a whiff of sweet creamed corn (typical in a young Chardonnay that has gone through malolactic fermentation). The aromas evolve to show citrus, ripe pineapple and oak notes. On the palate, there are flavours of tangerine and sweet butter, with a rich, creamy texture. The wine is not shy on ripeness, with a stated alcohol of 13.6%. All the elements are here for a wine that will develop further richness and complexity if you are patient. Unfortunately, only 140 cases were made. 90 points.
