This offers decent value with considerable, obvious oak clove spice, sawdusty notes around green peach and melon...

The 2013 Strewn Chardonnay Barrel Aged has Icewine-like aromas of sweet apricot, honey, nuts and acacia on the nose and stewed pear, stewed gooseberry and intense oak + vanilla on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry/dry, fruity wine; OFF-BALANCE, slightly oxidized with checked acidity and a long, vanilla/oak dominated finish. Drink this wine with heavier, acid-forward foods; drink now (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 84 pts – long way off from the 2012 vintage that scored 88-89 pts. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'LTO Chardonnay tasting' http://grapeselections.com/lto-chardonnay-tasting/.
