Big, viscous, mouth-filling Knights Valley Chardonnay that is almost certainly still in its developmental stage. Lovely ripe peach and poached pear fruit along with suggestions of butterscotch, flowers, and an interesting undertone that reminded me of Scotch whiskey. Very rich and long in the mouth and finish. Super Chardonnay, but not for those looking for a crisp, light-weight example. - HK 2012-06-09
