Review

The 2012 Chardonnay Charles Ranch is all about texture. Then again, the vineyard was planted in 1981, and there is no denying the pedigree these old vines confer. Brioche, dried flowers, almonds, hazelnuts pears and smoke meld together in a big, voluptuous Chardonnay loaded with personality and a level of complexity that will be a sheer joy to uncover over the following years.
