This wine has aromas of key lime, almonds and lemon custard. The palate is precise and focused with nice richness on the mid-palate that leads to a deep and long finish.

Wine AdvocateSeeing the same elevage (16 months, 30% new French oak), the 2011 Chardonnay Bien Nacido comes from vines planted in 1973. It offers up a rich, masculine profile with copious crushed stone-like minerality, hazelnut and citrus blossom, flowing to a gorgeously focused, detailed palate. Seriously impressive and loaded with energy and tension, it will thrill for 3-5 years (possibly longer). Drink now-2018.
