Pyramid Valley Vineyards Chardonnay Field of Fire 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Just slightly reductive on the nose, this offers up a big mineral note framed by lovely, earthy fennel pollen notes and soft peach and apricot aromas. In the mouth this is big, rich and structured. It's a very firm expression of Chardonnay, even if it is quite ripe with a fine background note of oak and lovely lemon curd fruit oozing out from the edges. The finish shows more earthy tones and fine, nutty oak elements that all lead to a succulent mineral finale. 93pts

This opens with a distinct note of boiled peanuts on the nose, joined by layers of floral, honeycomb and heirloom apple fruit aromas. In the mouth this shows super fine balance, with light honey and toasted almond accents framing the core of clear orchard fruit. Very transparent feeling with fine depth to the zesty mineral and fruit flavors. Bright acid on the back end drives the lovely, vibrant finish, showing a little spice and lingering lemon verbena aromas. 92pts
