Aromas of citrus, green apple and underripe pear with typical popcorn/clove smokiness. The palate shows a beautiful balance of fruit and smokey, nutty wood, great acidity and a long finish. There is a touch of heat on the finish but it's reigned in by the persistent fruit. Great chard and another in the list if wines I've enjoyed from this winery.

Citrus, apple and pear aromas from the cork. Toasty apple, buttered popcorn and pear aromas from the glass. On the palate, the bright acidity jumps at you, followed by layers of apple, pear, and spice. Medium-full bodied with a long finish. Extra dry. Moved up 1 whole point (to 89pts) on the 2nd day as acidity calmed down. Tasted Aug/2012.

A full Chardonnay with some buttery, butterscotch notes, pear, and warm spices balaced by some lemon and a hint of fresh herbs; creamy on the palate finishing with that butterscotch lingering for a while. If you like a ripe Chardonnay, this is nicely balanced saving a bit of an alcohol prickle at the end.
