Wine EnthusiastThis is a great price for a single vineyard Chardonnay, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, thanks to the familiar buttered toast and singed oak aromas, which are cut but a lemon-curd-pastry element. The palate falls in line with traditional California style, but done well and balanced, with oak, vanilla and marshmallow flavors.
