This is a delicious Chardonnay that revels in leesy spiced pear, apricot, citrus oil, and roasted nut flavors. Very rich feeling in the mouth - almost oily - but beautifully balanced with refreshing acidity. Smooth and elegant going down. Mature and drinking super at age three; I wouldn't be inclined to let this one age much longer. - HK 2012-10-09
