More oak. More depth of fruit and complexity as well.

Dense and pleasing, phenolic style with modest amount of new oak but plenty of rich oxidative qualities.

The #wine was fantastic. Oxidative, old lemon, creamy. Butter, light oak, partial ML, if you've got one, drink it now

Have liked this #wine before but 12 is not for me. A lot of ripe lemon, not much balance.

What a spectacularly lovely Chardonnay--supple, light but full, nice citrusy elements, best chard I've had in quite some time.
