Benchmarking. Decanted for 6 hours in a wide-bottom decanter. In reality, opened this for Saturday (it is Thursday). On the nose: off the bat, perhaps doesn't have the intensity of the 15, but a coiled density, very much its own vintage...rose petals, leaves, wild strawberry, soft mulberry and pomegranate. By the way, the color is amazing for a Thomas: a dense magenta. On the palate: fantastic acidity, then soft stem notes, black raspberry, wild strawberry, excellent density, then sour cherry and soft finely grained tannin on the finish. Wow..perhaps not as immediately enticing as the 15, but undoubtedly one of my favorite early showings since at least '12. We'll see how this develops over the next few days. — 5 days ago

V12. Beautiful wine! Soft olive nose . Juicy black currant and blackberry fruit. Smooth, slightly chalky, peppery, mocha finish. Perfectly balanced. Very nice food wine. — a month ago
Light yellow in color with a golden tint.
Strong nose of citrus, vanilla, oak, yellow apples, spices, toast and white pepper.
Medium to full-bodied with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, light grapefruits, earth, oak, vanilla, smoke, spices, light earth and black pepper.
Nice finish with spices and limes.
This is a very enjoyable Oaky Chardonnay from Napa Valley. Showing a nice smooth and buttery mouthfeel.
Although an oaky Chardonnay is not my style, I really enjoyed it, especially with food.
I paired it with a very fatty Brie cheese and caviar.
A good quality wine. Neither sweet nor bitter, just very enjoyable.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
