A spectacular bargain in sub-$20 Chardonnay, this wine will hold its own with Chardonnays costing three times as much. Rich, forward aromas and flavors of lemon curd, hazelnuts, peach, and spice. Beautiful ripe-fruit texture and mouth-filling viscosity. Long, clove-tinged finish. Acid balance makes it lively and refreshing, and it has a feeling of elegance and purity one usually finds only in more expensive wines. Case-worthy. - HK 2010-12-04
