Liberty School Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

2010 Liberty School Chardonnay has a brilliant pale-lemon color and delicate scents of assorted citrus fruit and freshly sliced Granny Smith apples. A zesty acidity seamlessly coalesces with the wine's refreshingly sumptuous flavors of lime, apples, butterscotch and pie crust. Excellent structure and balance lead to a long and clean finish.

Ripe with pineapple and almond fruit on the nose, lightly dusted with spices and cream and topped with vanilla. This is rich and really nutty on entry with a creamy texture and soft, delicate fruit flavors even a hint of minerality on the mid-palate that helps to punctuate this richness that can be oppressive. There's a lot of weight here for the money with ripe heavy pear fruit on the palate and extend over the finish. Others will enjoy this more for its concentration but this lacks freshness and balance for me. 85pts

Very, very oaky-I rather liked it, actually.

One whiff of this wine and you know there is definitely oak! As intense as the oak is, it is still well integrated. Butter, vanilla, caramel, and toasty oak on the nose. On the palate I got vanilla, stone fruit/peach, and pineapple...all well balanced with acid, giving a moderately long finish. I disagree with other posters who say the finish is acidic....I feel the acid really needs to be there to balance the wine properly. I think this is a good classic Cali chardonnay.

Fruit-driven in style, this Chardonnay offers up-front aromas of green apple and citrus blossom typical of the variety. Bright flavors of citrus, pineapple, bosc pear, honey and a subtle hint of toasted oak are balanced by a clean, crisp finish.

Good price for a dry, crisp and flavorful Chardonnay with some real fancy character. Flatters the palate with opulent pineapple jam, pear, lemon and orange fruit flavors, finished with rich oak.
