This Y Block no longer indicates it's from Bien Nacido Vineyard, only from Santa Barbara County. But whatever vineyards it comes from, it's a fresh, lively, tasty Chardonnay. Fruit leans towards the tropical, and texturally it's more crisp than voluptuous. Touches of vanilla, nutmeg, hazelnut, melon, pear. Clean and well-defined, refreshing and untiring, nice level of acidity. Excellent value. - HK 2014-10-27
