2010 DuMOL isobel Russian River Valley Chardonnay

13.9% alc., 955 cases, $60. (Reviewed February 27, 2013). Aged 15 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Light straw color and clear in the glass. Very fresh scent of lemon, grilled peach, pear and savory herbs. Remarkable palate presence with impressive energy and a vibrant lift of acidity on the extended finish. The peach, lemon and nutty flavors are complimented by a touch of caramelized oak, and really grab your attention. Very flavorful, but has the balance and restraint to pair beautifully with food. Score: 94. Reviewed December 14, 2014
