Natalie's Score: 89/100

Nicely balanced Chardonnay with fresh green apple and lime zest aromas. Judicious use of oak weaves its lightly smoky way through this voluptuous wine.

Chardonnay food pairings: dungeness crab, grilled halibut, oysters, rotisserie chicken, roast turkey.

Only 23% of the 2009 Chardonnay spent 2 months in new French oak and was stirred
twice weekly. This allowed part of the Chardonnay to have contact with the lees and
develop a silkly mouth feel. The remainder of the Chardonnay was aged in stainless
steel tanks to develop fruit characteristics. After 2 months they were blended together before bottling in March 2010.
