2008 Chardonnay, Carneros
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
More open in aroma than on the palate, this wine shares familial traits in its firm and slightly citrusy flavors. It has good depth to match up with its still nascent fruit, and if more generous than its mate below, it comes with much of its texture. Both in the nose and structure, it suggests a lot more to be found with a few years of quiet time in the cellar.
