Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 79 points

    December 17, 2012 - Nose: Strong notes of quince and tropical fruit. Meyer lemon as well, all framed by wood spice and some reductive notes. Palate: Big acidity is joined by lemons on the attack. I struggle to stop my face from puckering up by the time the mid-palate rolls around as there is tons of acidity and a bitter, medicinal, sort of mineral element that dominates from here on out. The medicinal component lingers on the finish and I find myself wondering where the fruit is.

    Big, rich, and packing a real puckering wallop, this chardonnay simply feels too big. The richness also doesn't manifest itself as pleasing fruit but rather tons of puckering and dry extract. Likely an off bottle but I won't be spending another $45 to confirm that.
