An remarkable blending of typically-polar Chardonnay profiles. Big round melon and plush butter nose shocks the system when it suddenly shows itself as deft citrus and briary tannin in the mouth. Under-ripe pineapple and slight metallic give library-glasses intelligence to what you might have thought was a cheerleaders bikini-body. Tongue-curling edges reflect a Euro-twist on what the slight toasty vanilla suggests is All-American. Lean & Mean for a Chard, and a delicious example of the wine-producing holy-land that is *Sonoma Coast*.
