2008 Santa Barbara County Chardonnay
Candied apples and crisp asian pears wrapped in gorgeous French oak
Brilliant golden center with a matching rim. Asian pears abound, followed by candied apple and hints of banana on the nose. Nicely integrated new French oak and a kiss of butter cream, this wine offers a lingering acidity and that trademark sherbet overtone. The soft viscosity and playful structure nominate this wine for that "springtime on the patio" Chardonnay. It has just found its stride and will best be enjoyed over the next couple of years.
Style: Full, Bold
