Ripe green apples, cashew nuts, and toasty oak highlight the excellent nose of this Chardonnay. In the mouth, nicely ripe in texture but with balancing acidity that keeps the flavor interest up. Attractive spicy notes of nutmeg, cloves. Not extremely long but very satisfying and balanced. - WB Team 2005-12-16
