Review

Greenish gold.  Ripe orchard and pit fruit aromas are enlivened by lemon zest and ginger.  Smooth and fleshy in texture, offering broad pear and honey flavors and a subtle mineral touch.  Suggestions of vanilla and clove show the 60% new oak component and carry through a smoky, clinging finish, with the lemon note echoing  This was the last chardonnay vineyard that the Martinellis picked this vintage.
