Not a connosieur of california chards, This one is a great PQR & @ 5 years is showing some white Burgundy notes reminiscence of a Puligny Montrachet Village wine, like some fárm animals and earth. Still have 5 left I'll be trying next bottle in a year. Never has a California Chardonay that Was so close to the Burgundy Style. Beutyfull.
Agree with others, drinking window is closing in at present. Nose of stone, fruit and floral notes. Nice crisp taste but still smooth and lush, not overly oaked. Nice mildly tart, acidic finish that trails off. Not sure where this wine will be a year from now unless well cellared so you may want to open one up now.
