This focused 2009 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay reveals just ripe pineapple, lychee and bright lemony acidity with beautiful floral and mineral notes of honeysuckle, gardenia and wet stone. The softly lilting finish carries on and on.
International Wine CellarDistinctly more vibrant on the nose, offering aromas of kiwi, lime and flowers. Then tighter and less obviously sweet in the mouth, with firm citrus and white nectarine flavors supported by minerality. Impressively dense wine with a bright finish.
Wine SpectatorFresh, intense and vibrant, displaying a tight mix of full-bodied, citrus-laced green apple and pear flavors, with a touch of crème brûlée. Ends with a delicate mix of subtle flavors. Drink now through 2016. –JL
