Wind Gap Woodruff Vineyard Chardonnay, 2013

 I bought at closeout prices both the 2012 and 2013 Woodruff Vineyard Chardonnay. After having tasted both several times, we have concluded that the 2012 is the better wine. But both are remarkably good in a high acid format that is rarely found among Chardonnays from California.

Deep gold. Deeper and darker than I remember from the last bottle. It may look overly mature but still has lots of life. Lemon creme, pears and sweet spice. Bracing acidity. A cascade of flavors that get richer and more enjoyable with every sip. Leaner and less complex than the 2012 but still very good.
