Possibly the best Chardonnay I ever had, at least as far as CA is concerned. Clean, crisp, delightful fruit. No oak. Daou always reliable.

Great chardonnay, the new oak does nit overdo it. Hints of salty caramel and stone fruit.

Crisp orchard fruit with a long finish. Very nice.

Huge vanilla, butter, oak up front, dwarfs the apricot, lemon, and maybe pear underneath. Finish is long lasting, toasted caramel lingers like dessert, but you have to be into this kind of chard. If you are, it really delivers.
