CATTLEYA CHARDONNAY, PRATT VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2014
The 2014 Chardonnay Pratt Vineyard is an exotic, lemon, honeycomb, hazelnut and toasty oak-scented beauty that has terrific mid-palate density, a supple, rich, layered texture, good acidity and additional minerality on the finish. This is a beautiful, rich, Burgundian-styled Chardonnay that will be better in a year, and evolve nicely through 2024.
NVWE Notes: This is an elegant, yet flavor-packed Chardonnay. The nose rolls-out a panorama of fruity-savory scents, as red apple, white peach, green melon rind, lemon curd, tangerine zest, vanilla wafer, hazelnut and hints of coconut and nut husk create a harmonious perfume. Opulence tempered by zest makes the mouth-feel just as elegant, and the fruity-zesty-creamy balance holds through a super-long finish. The lasting memory is of yellow peach, pear, quince, fresh apple sauce, lemon curd, watermelon sorbet, white pepper, vanilla wafer and hazelnut flavors in exquisite harmony. This beauty should be even grander in another twelve to twenty-four months. 100 cases produced.
