This wine was a big hit last evening with Asher after he got a pinky-taste. This morning he asked for “wine please.” (Uh-oh) While I’m inclined to reward such politeness it seemed a bit early in the day. The wine itself? A bigger and more forward style of Chardonnay than I normally gravitate to but can’t fault the quality and balance. The grapefruit, lemon curd, pineapple creme brûlée and moderate toast should meld beautifully with some more time.

Matchstick reduction. Butter, wonderful tension between snappy acidity and full,viscous feel. Baked apples.
