L.J. scored this wine: 90/100
Pale lemon green coloured dry Chardonnay benefiting from the Pacific ocean breezes and morning fog. Pronounced nose of honey, toasted pecans (I just toasted them; exact match!), caramel, coconut, white peach, lychee, vanilla, and buttered popcorn.
Medium bodied, dry and food friendly acidity. In the mouth the caramel, honey, toasted pecans, peach and lychee are still present; rich and smooth. I paired it with lobster tail skewers grilled with butter and lemon; unfortunately not a great match; a richer sauce may work better. It stood up well to a salad of fresh seasonal greens and crunchy sprouts dressed with garlic oil vinaigrette (Farm Boy). A rich sipper when you want to indulge yourself. I later tried this with white pizza made with pecorino cheese, which is nutty and a bit of parmesan, on a base of caramelized mushrooms, peppers and onions with garlic. The nuttiness and caramelized tone of the wine paired very well with this.
