Review

The three 2012 Chardonnays demonstrate the vintage's opulence and full-bodied exuberance and richness. From older vines planted in 1982, the 2012 Chardonnay Charles Ranch spent time in 58% new French oak. Gorgeous notes of honeysuckle, white peach, caramelized pear and orange blossoms are followed by a full-bodied, complex, intense Chardonnay that should drink well for 5-7 years.
