This is, simply put, classic Napa Chardonnay – everything turned up to 11. Deep, deep gold. Powerfully buttery, new oak aromatics. Vanilla and very ripe mango fruit. Very full bodied. Powerfully intense, very ripe mango. High alcohol, giving heat to the oak-laced finish. Soft acidity. Too much of everything (but very distinctive).
