Wind Gap Woodruff Vineyard (Santa Cruz Mountain) Chardonnay, 2012

This 10-year-old Chardonnay is drinking beautifully right now. Deep gold color. Powerful and persistent bouquet. Buttered apples, caramelized, plus lemon creme, honey and roasted nuts. Rich on the mid-palate. French oak qualities are nicely moderated by natural fruit acidity. Complex fruit flavors on a well balanced finish. The color of this wine will get even deeper, but the strong fruit presence is likely to continue indefinitely. Does not smell or taste old.
