I like oak in chardonnay, as long as its good oak and as long as the chardonnay has balance. This wine carries its oak perfectly. The aromas are classic cool climate chardonnay with hints of lime, pears and wet stone with a strong underpinning of creme brulée and sweet oak. The fl avors are rich but nicely balanced by clean, fresh acidity... mouthfilling with a long finish. This stands with 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2008 as among the best chardonnays I've made from Bien Nacido. If you like it and you like to age it, please put some in the cellar for at least 10 years, I certainly will.
"Grown on a steep hillside facing north by northwest, the fruit at Block Eleven achieves intensity of flavor with restrained ripeness. Fine oak character surrounds it without entering the center of the wine, which is focused on citrus and fresh cream flavors, lemon curd and apple butter. There's a floral scent of jasmine that brings out the wine's underlying minerality. An elegant match for arctic char roasted with wild mushrooms."
