2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
The 2012 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of floral aromas, fruit flavors and baked pastry flavors. At first the wine expresses aromas of citrus and pear. Then, after five minutes in the glass, the wine opens up to release jasmine, orange blossom and vanilla aromas. From the first sip to the last, the wine is smooth and well balanced. Flavors of pear, green apple, peach, nectarine are accented by honey, butter and caramel reminiscent of baked pears, caramel apples or a lemon-pineapple tart. The finish is smooth with no hint of bitterness.
