Wine is clear with pale, lemon color characteristics.
The condition is clean and light from an intensity standpoint on the nose. The aromas are filled with citrus fruits, peach, vanilla and oak.
This is a dry wine with medium acidity and a full body. The flavor characteristics are similar to the nose with citrus fruits, apple, vanilla and toasted oak dancing on the palate.
A long lasting vanilla flavor finish.
A good wine overall. Pretty standard for a California chardonnay with a profile that you would anticipate. This was not a real complex wine and the higher oak flavor threw off the balance a bit. Would I drink it again? If it were being poured sure. Would I go out of my way to find it on a menu, probably not.

Subtle flavors of apple and citrus balanced with a buttery texture and slight toasted oak make this a food friendly wine and great for sipping.
