Definitely one of the better Cali chardonnays I've tasted. Nose has apricot, peach, a hint of citrus, and baked apples. Just a hint of oak. The palate is balanced, elegant, and nice with some minerality in addition to green fruits. Retains freshness yet still fairly full bodied. Not a heavy, oaky style which is nice.
Opened for a guest who inhaled it during the evening. I had a smidge, but not enough to really post much more than a brief nod to liking it. She certainly did. Last bottle. I'd buy this in new release to give it a try.
Agree with others here that by the nose, one would think this was an Old World offering. Very Burgundian. Flavors of lemon rind, straw, light citrus, with a nice acidity & light oak. Opened early, but I couldn't resist. Will need to see about picking up some more.
