Russian River, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 91

Alcohol by volume: 14.2%
Price at time of purchase: $55.00 (from winery)
Type: Chardonnay

This is an utterly seductive and graceful Chardonnay. Complex nose displays an ethereal, perfectly balanced mix of tropical fruit, citrus oil, apricot, mineral water, and subtle toasty/leesy notes. Rich yet light as air, it caresses rather than assaults the palate, and its qualities linger on long after it's swallowed. Not quite as deep and long as the 2005 River Block, but an absolute joy to drink. - HK 2010-01-27
