Lingering long lasting flavor, very phenolic but no bitterness or astringency, wood and ML are there but not dominating, rich and savory but packs a fresh zing coupled with thick fulfilling mouth feel.

Round and long, with good complexity. Well integrated oak.

If I could have a "house white" this would (probably) be it. Outstanding depth, balance and length. Can't complain.

Beautiful Santa Cruz Chardonnay the way it should be. Enough texture and acid to balance the fruit and oak, all playing together well. This should age for some time, but drinking well now.
