100% Chardonnay, aged in French oak barrels, 30% new.

Medium light straw color. Clear and transparent.

Forward, and expressive aromas. Tropical fruits intermingled with nice toasted nut character.

On the palate, it has a great structure. Med plus plus acidity, med full body (13.5 abv), dry. A balance of freshness, fruit profile, and oak components. Last very long on the finish.

Tasted alongside the 2014 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard bottling. This Los Alamos counterpart is livelier, more stood out, and more truly American. Going to be stellar in 7-10 years. 91++.
