Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Slow to unfold, with spicy floral, anise, fig and honeydew melon notes, this rich and full-bodied version is most intriguing on the finish, where the smoke and fig impart a deep persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Whiffs of fresh buttered corn, subtle streaks of caramelized oak, and vanilla incense aromatics lead into a rich palate redolent of lemon curd spread onto a toasted croissant; bright acidity equalizes an hedonistic texture almost resembling lanolin. Showing a ripe and lasting finish of roasted citrus fruits and toasted almonds, this Chardonnay is sure to deepen in complexity over the next year to two.
