This Chardonnay has an appealingly rich, glycerin-filled texture, a good level of minerality, and a lingering toasty finish. However, the dominant impression I get in the nose, flavor, and finish is oak, oak, and oak. A bit of fruit would have elevated the rating of this wine considerably -- to me there is not enough fruit to support the oak. - HK 2002-09-29
