As textbook as it get s for a Cali Chardonnay with all the forward good qualities hand in hand with all the predictable and uninspiring bits of a cali chardonnay. Enough oak for another ark and so on. At least the alc level is in check at 13.5%. Its a good wine don’t get us wrong but also uninspiring.85-87
I was possibly a little too harsh in my tasting note a couple of months ago. Whilst still a surprising amount of citrus for a Cali chardonnay it did have some oak to balance this out. I found it more interesting this time than my first bottle
A lovely wine but not what I was expecting and to be honest not really what I was hoping for. It has notes of mineral, steel and acidity when i was hoping for more butter, oak and vanilla which I have found in other ABC Chardonnays and which I at least want from a great Cali Chardonnay. Need to think about food parings with this wine. I don't want to be too harsh however as it is clearly high quality and has some real charm but buyers be aware that this is not your typical flavour profile
