The 2012 Chardonnay is full of bright fruit and savory notes. Lychee, Bosc Pear, fresh lemon curd and oyster shell mingle on the nose. The palate entry is defined and focused, showing silky tannins that highlight piecrust, Meyer lemon, brioche and crème brulee, while the broad mid-palate leads to a clean and persistent finish.

The 2012 Chardonnay offers caramelized citrus and buttery fruit, but it seemed more restrained, and not as open or easy to evaluate as the 2011. I suspect it was holding something in reserve.

Bold, rich and creamy, both in flavor and texture, with dashes of blood orange, pear, nectarine and honeydew. This is expansive and shows a pithy edge on the finish. Drink now.
