($50; 100% whole clusters) Hazy yellow. Deeply pitched scents of sweet butter, poached pear, peach pit, tarragon and iodine. Chewy in texture and packing serious punch, with sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors and a suave undercurrent of smoky lees and minerals. Surprisingly lively on the finish, which leaves tangy mineral and lime pith notes in its wake. Very complex, fresh chardonnay.

Opened and decanted for one half hour. Initial nose of crisp tropical fruits and wet stone. There are also some soft floral notes that complete the wonderful experience. The palate is clean, crisp and inviting. There are light, soft flavors of pear with really nice acidic edges and finish. There is just a touch, a kiss, of oak that smooths the wine down as it travels down the palate. Wonderful wine!

Well conceptulized chardonnay with excess depth. The first smell was that funky canned corn/vanilla that spills out of oaked cali chard, but this calmed down to produce stone fruit and tangerine. The acid breaks through after an hour in the glass.
