2008 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay
Flavors of honeycomb, Asian pears and orange blossom with crisp acidity.
Rich, golden center with a matching rim. Aromas of raw honeycomb, Asian pears, and orange blossom shine through the nose. The bold mid-palate parallels the opulent fruit expected of Santa Barbara County, and French oak is apparent and well integrated. Subtleties of caramel and butterscotch provide a nice base for the dessert-like fruit. Classic Santa Barbara sherbet qualities show and are inspired by the ripe fruit and crisp acidity. With great viscosity and structure, this wine is drinking beautifully right now.
Style: Full, Bold
