As ever, this is a superb chardonnay with limes and lemons, beautifully blended with cloves and spices from the oak, as well as slate undertones. The angular acidity guides a pointed and tightly woven palate to a minerally and wonderfully satisfying conclusion. What a slender, elegant wine. If only more chardonnay in Napa tasted like this (and cost as much)! Approachable now, but better to hold for a decade and watch this evolve.
