2009 Dunstan Durell Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay

14.4% alc., $39.95. · Golden yellow color and clear in the glass. Oak-driven aromas of toffee, butterscotch, allspice and mocha java with baked pear in the background. Tasty middleweight flavors of baked pear, baked apple, honey, oak toast and minerals with good fullness and roundness. The heavy oak influence is not for me personally, but the wine is well crafted in its style. Good (+). Reviewed April 4, 2012
