The 2010 WALT La Brisa Sonoma County Chardonnay boasts a deep straw color. Bright, playful aromatics featuring tropical fruit and melon followed by hints of sweet hazelnut and toasted marshmallow. The creamy palate is deep, lush, and overflowing with apricot, pear and citrus flavors with a penetrating, complex finish that sails on and on. Expect the wine to gain complexity over the next 2-5 years.
"This clean, pure white features notes of ripe white peach, citrus, light cedary oak and cooking spices. Full-bodied and intense, this is a touch raw, complex and persistent. Drink now through 2018."
"Hazy medium gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of apricot nectar, pineapple, mango, honey and coconut; a bit Sauternes-like! Fine-grained, thick and exotic, but with plenty of underlying acidity giving shape to the wine's thick texture. Finishes with strong flavors of fresh and dried apricot. Totally unrestrained chardonnay for fans of the style."
