Disappointing at this price - there are numerous more interesting Chardonnays that are considerably less expensive. Somewhat bland flavors of ripe pear, vanilla, wood, and understated spice; a tad heavy and clumsy in the mouth - weighty without much fruit. Certainly pleasant and drinkable, just not worth the price. - HK 2013-01-21
