" The aroma of this full-bodied but balanced Chardonnay brings to mind ripe Golden Delicious apples and jasmine. Mineral notes and a touch of caramel balance the wine's bright fruit aromatics. On the palate, the wine is soft and supple with that ideal level of acid characteristic of Carneros fruit. 94% of the 2002 Chardonnay was fermented in barrels, and all lots developed with sur lie (on the lees) aging and malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged 8 months in oak barrels, 25% new and predominately French (with attractive spicy nuances contributed by a few Hungarian oak barrels). The wine went through light filtration and delicate fining."
