Rich Chardonnay from a cool Sonoma Coast vineyard that reminded me in some ways of a turbo Pouilly-Fuisse a wine with ripe, mouth-filling, leesy fruit and enough acidity to keep it focused and refreshing. Complex nose displays layers of fruit that range from baked apple to orange citrus to pineapple cake to ripe fig. Major dose of yeasty, toasty, sherry-like notes in both the aromas and finish that some tasters might find a little over-assertive. Attractively rich, almost oily mouth feel, but good acid balance keeps it clean. Definitely capable of being served cold. (Price estimated.) - HK 2009-07-02
