2014 Liquid Farm Chardonnay Bien Bien USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley

Excellent wine. Love the La Hermina wine and this is even better. Candied fruit, oak, lemon, spice, floral and pear. Medium plus finish and good acidity. This is an excellent example of Chardonnay from California.

Dark fruits, violets, dust, earth, minerals and underbrush. A rustic Syrah with plenty of aging left. Complex and classic Washington State Syrah.
