Color: Light golden straw.
Aroma: Beautiful bouquet. Cream, minerals, pears in butter, toasted nuts, oak
and fruit with a nutmeg background.
Taste: Medium bodied, hints of melon with herbs and ripe pears, toast and
butter. A complexity that past vintages have not had. Minerals with peaches
and cream. The fruit—acid—oak balance is perfect. Long finish and a lingering after taste that says "another sip". Will get better and better 4-6 years and
hold for 5 years after that
"The 2007 Chardonnay looks superb, with terrific tropical fruit such as pineapple intermixed with some poached pear, brioche notes, and citrus oils. The wine has beautiful intensity, full-bodied power, and zesty acidity, no doubt from the lack of any malolactic fermentation. "
