The grapes from this vineyards also end up in several other prestigious Oregon Chardonnays, so I was eager to try this. The aromas are light, floral, almond shell, and the flavors solidly reminiscent of a good, medium weight white Burgundy. There’s a lemony vein throughout that gets stronger in the finish. Touches of vanilla, oak, and cedar spice emerge as the wine warms in the glass. Recommended. BSE
