Review

Showing the implicit richness and slight restraint that are the unmistable marks of its maker, this ripe and yet tightly wound Chardonnay is again about promise as much or more so than it is about immediate gratification.  It is supple and slightly oily on entry, but it is far from an open and outgoing wine and tends to narrow a bit and get a touch chalky as it crosses the palate with amply acidity closing in at the finish.
