D’Anjou pear, Golden Delicious apple, pie crust, and a trace of tangerine zest are on the initial aromas. Nearly seamless in the mouth, it glides across the palate with a very wide, oily feel, which reveals a sprightly but sneaky presence of mouth-watering acidity and long finish. The nearly seamless nature of the wine at this early stage is due to the way the acidity presents as spritely vs. subtle. I think it portends great things in the next year or two when ‘nearly seamless’ becomes ‘perfectly seamless.’ With air, the pear facet increases along with the emergence of a faint floral note like wisteria flowers. Day 2: Saline/savory notes on the finish become more prominent. Day 3: Everything becomes cohesive in this complex, yet focused Chardonnay.
