This is a clear bright straw color and very viscous. The palate is rich with tropical fruit flavors, mango and pineapple, all with a light wood undercurrent rather than the heavily toasted oak of so many Sonoma Chardonnays. The finish is mid-length with fresh pineapple predominating. This is a food wine, one that would pair well with Pompano en Papillote. Highly Recommended. 91.
