Less fruit-driven than the Sonoma Coast offering showing subtle smoke spice and toast elements; orange peel and dried fruit scents emerged with aeration. Fat and silky with more spice and less depth of fruit than the Sonoma Coast bottling. ("Another big industrial-strength Napa chardonnay" opines Jayson Pahlmeyer.) Shows a bit more warmth and less grip on the back end. From grapes harvested on September 5 whereas the Sonoma Coast fruit was picked on October 5.
