Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($65) Bright, pale medium yellow. Captivating nose combines grapefruit, underripe pineapple, crushed stone and musky baking spices. Then rich and lush yet sharply delineated on the palate, with very dry flavors of pineapple, spices and stone. A very rich chardonnay that's still a bit youthfully subdued. Finishes long, ripe and dry, with a flavor of dusty stone.

Creamed corn and tropical fruit on the nose. Irreplaceable acid holds it together. Really awesome wine.
