One for the oak-lovers, this is an intensely flavored, medium-bodied white with layers of pear and brioche. The lingering finish turns a bit tropical, bringing in a hint of pineapple. BV was among the first to craft world-class Chardonnay in Carneros and this classic carries on the tradition of excellence.
This is very typical for Carneros chardonnay with sliced-apple, honey and lemon character. Some vanilla, too. I like the contrast between richness and brightness. Lots of flavor. Drink or hold.
