I only rate this 88 based on my wife's love of heavily-oaked Chardonnay. Nose is cheesy-caramel that hints at a sweet creamy texture. Yet on the palate, smooth apples and creamy smooth fruit & smoke is cleansed with a strong acidic backbone. Oak notes linger into along smoky caramel finish. Not really sure what to make of this one.
