Big, juicy Chardonnay blended from barrel selections from five different vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, Chalone, Santa Maria Valley, and Sta. Rita Hills appellations. Superlative density of fruit flavors but with beautiful acid balance to keep the palate tingling. Potent, ever-changing flavors of pineapple, citrus, and butterscotch flavors wrap around the taste buds and linger in the finish. This extremely well-made Chardonnay somehow keeps all this intensity in control. Hard to imagine not loving this wine, and it has several more years of happy life ahead of it. - HK 2013-01-19
