"Sourced from the Chehalem Mountain Vineyard, this was fermented via the black Chardonnay (intentional oxidation) method and aged 23 months in a one-year-old puncheon. The puncheon aging seems to have smoothed over and softened the mouthfeel. It's a generous wine with ample peach and melon fruit, leaning into papaya. The acidity is sufficient but not intrusive, and with its lush, palate-coating appeal it seems like a good candidate for drinking over the next three to five years." -Wine Enthusiast
