Deep gold color. Big, almost oily, hedonistic style of Chardonnay. Rich and long, with mouth-coating flavors - candied citrus, orange marmalade, toasty oak, vanilla, ginger, yet plenty of balancing acidity to keep it fresh and lively. Not what you'd call elegant, but it's opulence makes it excellent with rich food dishes that would overwhelm less dramatic Chardonnays. - HK 2014-09-27
