Pale golden color, with pungent aromas of green apple, apricot and citrus. Good balance between acidity and oak, with fruit predominating. Great balance. Long finish with complexity. Overall an excellent CA chardonnay. Plenty of life left in this, but its probably at its peak.
La única botella que ha repetido en los Juicios celebrados. El tiempo ha jugado a su favor, menos angular y ácida en boca y más melosa y floral en nariz. Sigue sin destacar pero se apreció un mejor potencial. De ocupar la última posición hace dos años a situarse en el medio de la tabla (4a)
Fast Times at the Frey's: Lioght medium gold color. Drank a 2.5oz pour over 40 minutes. Drank this side by side with a '08 Kistler Durell. I've had this wine enough times now that I should be able to identify it in my sleep. The nose is tropical, though not overly so, oak and spice. The palate is tropical too, pineapple, melon, round, and some sharpness to the oak on the finish at time. I thought this was a tad flabby in the mid palate, though later I didn't notice it as much.
