Not sure - artificial fruit but austere citric notes in the finish.

2014 vintage. Underripe peach and pear. Lots of lemon. Honey. M/L. M acid and body. Long finish. Not that bitter. Soft and balanced.

Fascinating wine. Pale straw color. Citrus notes with peaches, fig, truffle and a note of vanilla emerge on the nose. Lime and peaches reappear on the palate with a little apricot. BRIGHT ACID and RACY. Puzzling wine. Seems like a little phenolics on the finish. Will have to taste again to see if wine was intended in this style. Not oak/vanilla bomb at all.

Funny, Dundee Hills Pinot Noirs are just too earthy for me, but this Chardonnay from that appellation is beautiful. I enjoy a restrained Chardonnay with a hint of minerality and this one delivers exactly that. Pale in color, the nose delivers a light floral, lemon and nutty accent, followed by a lean, bone dry, citrusy palate with a lingering grapefruit finish. Was a fun pairing with blackened catfish and roasted green cauliflower.

Very crisp and tart. Almost Pinot Gris like.
