The wine offers a sophisticated nose of lemon custard, peaches, and a hint of pie crust. In the mouth, the stone fruits and some tropical notes, like pineapple come into the mix. I even get a hint of Granny Smith apple and vanilla bean on the finish. I’m smiling just writing about the wine. I hope when you taste it, it brings a smile to your face too.
Our goal is to deliver balance in our Chardonnay. We want oak and creaminess balanced against bright tropical and citrus fruit. Acidity and texture should be smooth, not sharp or astringent. Ultimately, it should be enjoyable, rich but refreshing. The Cannonball 2010 Sonoma Chardonnay saw 50% French Oak and 85% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
Fruity nose warm taste upfront and with dark berry in the middle and some tannins in the finish finishes and easy resolution with a little greenish fruit in the resolution. Not super complex but a fun easy drinker
Top Fave - 2009 was a better yr than 2010, but this is still great value
