Excellent wine. Slight greenish tint to the light yellow color. Initial flavors of citrus. More austere flavors when compared to the sweeter CA chardonnays. it opens up over an hour or so to show a hint of vanilla oak without sweetness. A great food wine. California needs more of this style chardonnay. Time will only make this better. Bravos to Arnot Roberts as usual for their consistency with this special vineyard property.
