Carte Blanche Chardonnay 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine AdvocateThe 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.
Wine SpectatorBold, 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.
