Pale in color with mild nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice varietal chard notes, apple, some vanilla and some butter. On the medium length finish the wine lingers nicely with some oak noticeable. The wine is subtle at first and it builds in complexity and depth. I would give it an 88-89. Quite nice.

Tasting Note
Crisp apple and melon fruit are joined by notions of orchard blossom, buttermilk, and hints of pineapple and coconut. Expertly balanced with great freshness and nerve, and a wonderfully creamy texture. Culminates in a gently toasty finish. Pair with lobster tail or crab legs. (VINTAGES panel, Jan. 2013).
