This was beautiful and even better as it was enjoyed with friends. Incredible purity of fruit with soft tannins and perfect acid - the balance and integration to me were off the charts. Chocolate, tobacco, dirty raspberries (stealing that note compliments of @Mark Flesher), cherry cola. Medium body with a long finish. — a year ago
LOVE this Chardonnay. To me, it was like Goldilocks: not too this, not too that - just right...there’s oak, but not too much, there’s acid, but not too much, there’s fruit, but not too much, it’s Cali but not too much, it’s Burg, but not too much...you get the idea. I think this has broad appeal (except if you only like a “Steel” Chard). Paired so well with truffle pizza and then a lemon (!) pizza.
Completely new to me so thank you @Ron R @Anne-marie Beausejour for sharing this gem with us! — a year ago
