Thursday, August 30, 2012 - Tasted non-blind from a chilled bottle, with and w/o food over 3hours, this is a very tasty example of just how good Oregon chardonnay can get. More Burgundian than the still too many fat and/or overoaked California examples, this is something of a cross between a well endowed Chablis and a Corton-Charlemagne. Pale straw/lemon in color, the nose has some lemon/melon followed by a focused palate of refined flavors that gets better with each sip. Starts out bright, tight and crisp and eventually develops into a fine and rich reward of barely noticable spice, fruit and fine acidity. Nice mouth feel. This will definately get better and more rewarding over the next 2-5yrs but can be enjoyed now with some decanting to let it open up and show its stuff. Made by the former winemaker at Domaine Serene.
