Very consistent with the last tasting - lime, minerals, a doughy note. Still a little tight and ungiving. Much better than the typical CA Chard but for me the previous vintage had a little more intensity and depth.
Pale gold hue. Nose of crisp green apples, limes, pear, and flint. Coiled like a spring on the palate, yielding taut, precise flavors of minerally yet tangy applecore notes. Elegant acidity freshening the citrus-laden finish. Poised, balanced chardonnay which should age very nicely.
Much better than my last bottle - face powder, creme brulee, lemon and lime and a doughy note. Steely on the palate and through the finish. Seems a little tighter wound than the 2005 at the same stage. Give them another 12 months.
I suspect that this was a bad bottle - it had a strong green, weedy streak. Shy aromas of green apple, creme brulee, a touch of pineapple and talc. A little flat on the palate and finish. A small amount left in the fridge over night showed a little better with a pleasing mineral and steely edge, and less green.
