Wild Oak Sonoma Chardonnay 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Wild Oak Chardonnay is a crisp yet full-bodied chardonnay that offers plush fruit in a clearly Burgundian context. The blend draws on outstanding sections of eight vineyards in diverse parts of Sonoma County, including the St. Francis Estate in Sonoma Valley. About one-third is from the Yamakawa Vineyard in the wind-chilled Carneros-Sonoma AVA, which lends a high-toned purity and lemon chiffon flavor with bracing acidity. Vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River Valley impart floral overtones, a touch of tropical fruit, and pinpoint acid balance, all finished with a wonderfully creamy texture and the butterscotch-vanilla undertones from French oak.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast The grapes for this interesting and compelling Cab come from mall over the county, including Russian River Valley, Rockpile and the Mayacamas Mountains. The winemaker's blending expertise shows in the wine's delicious balance. Dry and zesty, it show classic flavors of black currant, cedar and plums., with a rich, complex finish of dusty spices."
