    wonderful, lighter and drier than the rombauer with a bit more crisp and snap, not as sweet and syrupy, very tasty

    Concentrated and powerful, this is anything but your average California Chardonnay. In fact, it's a bit unorthodox, Burgundian in the sense of its orientation toward terroir expression rather than fruitiness or oak. Yes, the wood shows in scents of walnuts and exotic spice. And the fruit turns up the power with flavors of mandarin orange, accents of primrose and other floral notes. Yet the core of the wine seems to come from a melding of these elements, from a combination that plays as distinctly Santa Maria. There's a fine line of acidity to keep all the fruit toned and lifted, a balance that would carry its flavors with buttery escargots or grilled salmon.
