This is truly in-your-face California Chardonnay. Deep golden in color, I was initially concerned about its age. But it is simply a huge, explosive fruit-bomb overflowing with tropical fruits, coconut, vanilla, and spicy oak. Extremely rich, almost unctuous, it stays just barely this side of being over the edge. Remarkably fresh at age 6, but I'd drink it up. - HK 2017-12-31
