The 2009 Carneros Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of sweet vanilla, fresh kiwi and pineapple fruit against a creamy background. On the palate, the wine's crisp acidity complements the intense flavors of rich apple, pear and vibrant peaches before culminating in a long, creamy finish that is typical of Carneros Chardonnays.
Light & Fruity
Bright and citrusy on the nose, with elements of almonds and not too much oak. This wine's attack was surprisingly muted, some notes of apple and lemon and not hot and dry. The alcohol is not pronounced; this is a light wine that finishes short. Nice easy drinking but not tremendously complex.
Rich & Creamy
too buttery for me, but ok
