Williams Selyem Chardonnay Russian River Valley Hawk Hill 2005
Roasted nuts, mocha and citrus blossom dominate the aromas in this wine. The extended barrel aging has made the mouth-feel creamy and lush with a toffee element. The naturally high acidity gives this wine a long Meyer lemon and wet stone/mineral flavor in the finish. A wine that definitely benefits from several years of cellaring.
Sophisticated, rich style of chardonnay. Amber color--dark for a chard. Notes of caramel, toffee, and apple. Whiff of alcohol on the nose, but doesn't overwhelm the overall experience.
