Lemon, white flowers, spices, apples and a subtle hint of oak wrap around the palate in the 2010 Chardonnay Old Guard. This is an utterly impeccable, beautifully balanced Chardonnay oozing with class and pedigree. The layered, resonant finish rounds things out in style. The 2010 is 55% Sanford & Benedict and 45% Solomon Hills fruit aged 50% in neutral oak, 25% in new oak and 25% in stainless steel. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. - Antonio Galloni
