This is a very interesting Chardonnay from Napa Valley.

Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Dry on the palate with over ripen citrus fruits, apples, melons, honey, peaches, spices, black pepper, oak, vanilla, earth, light vegetables.

Smells perfumy in a manly kind of way.

Feels over the hill, but it's not. Really nice now.

Better when not too cold, and much better after 90 minutes of airtime. I did not decant it though.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$90

14.6% alc.
Nicely integrated oak already additional time will help this come into even better balance.

Lovely Chardonnay from Moone-Tsai! My Fiancée has exceptional taste in white wine! Very well balanced with a wonderful acidity, notes of green apple, lemon/lime zest, cream, herbs, and long finish.! 😀
