This benchmark chardonnay is the best example from Oregon I have tried to date. On the palate, it is intense in flavor but still restrained by it's youth. It has brilliant acidity, a panoply of fruit flavors and spice accents, and even a touch of tannin structure, all of which continue to expand in layers as it flows into a remarkably long, fruit-centric finish. It is seasoned with a whiff of quality wood (half unoaked, half in large new puncheons). Most remarkable is the texture . . .The wine shows extraordinary richness and dry extract, with a thick body that drenches the palate. Despite all the fireworks, it is far from flamboyant -- think Puligny, not modern California -- and there are tremendous hidden depths here that only time can unlock. Decant now, or cellar.
