Wine Profile
Ratings
89 Points. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. Pale yellow.  Fresh pear and herbs on the nose, with a floral nuance gaining strength with air.  Vibrant, focused orchard fruit flavors are given a firm edge by notes of talc and lemon pith and gain spiciness with air.  The floral note carries through to the clean, nervy, persistent finish. This delivers serious bang for the buck.

88 Points. Editor's Choice. Wine Enthusiast, April 2012. With just a bit of oak adding a note of buttered toast, this bone-dry, high acid Chardonnay tantalizes with savory citrus fruit enriched with pear and honeysuckle. From Talley, and made from their vineyards in Edna and Arroyo Grande valley. Good price for a Chardonnay this elegant. - S.H.
Vineyard Notes
The 2010 growing season began with average rainfall for the season and a warm spring that allowed for excellent fruit set. Yields were moderate for pinot noir. The summer featured foggy mornings followed by cool afternoons with daily high temperatures in the mid 70s. A six day warm period in mid-September finished ripening the crop. Acidity was higher than normal due to the cool season.
