73 in NYC in February calls for some Chardonnay. Citrus (grapefruit, lemon), pear, almonds with some hints of mineral. A touch creamy thanks to the oak, but balanced with nice acidity.

Suprisingly restrained. We expected a big wine.

As good as California Chardonnay gets? Honey, melon, grapefruit, lemon zest, high minerality - not creamy.
