Review

The 2011 Chardonnay Charles Ranch (30-year-old vines) is fashioned from the Old Wente clone. It possesses lots of unbuttered popcorn, pineapple and white currant notes intertwined with a whiff of wet rocks. As this buttery, rich, exotic, decadent, full-bodied Chardonnay sits in the glass notes of orange marmalade also appear. Enjoy it over the next 4-6 years.
