    Winemaker's Notes:

    A big, rich wine from California's Central Coast, this full and elegantly textured Chardonnay has decadent levels of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla. These layers melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice.

    This wine epitomizes the Central Coast's crisp and vibrant Chardonnay character. We use a malolactic fermentation to impart rich buttery flavor, then leave the wine sur lie to achieve a full, soft body. Aging for nine months in premium American oak barrels enhances the golden color, adds creamy texture, and injects nuances of subtle toasty oak and spice.

    Ron Blachman (9/7/2014)
    Pale lemon/straw color, medium body, leggy. Not much nose at all, even as it warms up - perhaps the slightest hint of citrus or oak but really very faint. Nice balance, good fruit and ample acid to balance, a hint of desirable bitterness adds complexity and a fair-to-middling finish; perhaps just a hint of CO2? It drinks nicely in a medium-sized, quaffable way but the absence of any nose leaves me cold. The closure is a good quality elastomeric imitation-cork; I think is much superior to the recent trend to screw-caps and is entirely suitable for this wine. Generally, it is a pleasant wine but I think there are better Chardonnays at this price point.
