The initial aromas triggers "yep, that's Chardonnay." Some tropical notes are enveloped by mandarin and hints of fresh fennel bulb. The mid-palate is generous but the finish is fresh and enticing.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chardonnay Dierberg Vineyard is no shrinking violet and gives up ripe, layered notes of lemon curd, ripe peach, brioche and vanilla bean to go with a medium-bodied, rounded, supple profile on the palate. 100% barrel-fermented and aged 12 months in 400-liter (15% new) barrels and then 6 months in stainless steel, it's a gorgeous wine that also represents superb value.
