Estate Grown Chalone Chenin Blanc 2017

Beautiful straw color. Smells like flowers and lemon dessert. Also ground up rocks. Flavors are voluminous and full for white. I’d even say creaminess is in there. Body is big. Hints of honey. Orange flower honey. — 3 months ago

I don’t have any experience with this vineyard (or this AVA, honestly) so it’s hard to know what the typical profile is, but this was a unique expression of Mourvèdre. I would have never guessed it was that varietal if tasting blind (may have guessed a funky Pinot? Reminded me of Chacra’s Cincuenta Pinot).

Followed out of the decanter for two hours, and then out of the bottle the next day. Muddled ruby red in the glass. Aromatically it has both a mix of stem/green and carbonic flair to it. It wasn’t uber carbonic but I’m assuming it was at least somewhat utilized. Herbal, strawberry purée and spiced raspberries too. On the palate it has ripping acidity wrapped in a rhubarb tart and rocky profile, with juicy black cherry toward the finish. Acidity has me thinking this will hold for a bit, though I’m not sure it changes much.
