Pine Ridge – Chardonnay 2015, Carneros Collines Vineyard – Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers elegance as well as power. It reveals notes of mirabelle plum and small yellow fruits associated with discreet toasted hints, kumquat, very discreet hints of butter as well as an imperceptible touch of oak and pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit tight and offers minerality, a good definition, a slight unctuosity as well as richness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of quince and mirabelle plum associated with small notes of small yellow fruits, ripe citrus as well as touches of butter, vanilla and toasted touches. The finish is (very) discreetly tight.
