Green/gold in color. The nose is dusty with vanilla and slight lumber and slight grapefruit. A nice oily texture. On the palate there is lemon and grapefruit notes. It could use a bit more acidity to make it more food friendly. A nice slight red apple note on the reasonably long finish. There is a bit of a sweet note at the very end that is a bit sticky. Probably should be drink in the next few years. All said, though, this is really an excellent value for a $13 Chardonnay. It is interesting and easy to drink at the same time. You could certainly pay a lot more for a Chardonnay that gives you a lot less.
