ZEPALTAS CHARDONNAY "BABUSHKA", RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2013

Wine Enthusiast

90 Points

Steely and perfumed, this wine sees only 20% new French oak, remaining vibrantly fresh. Baked apple and lemon pith veer into grapefruit on the palate, with spiciness to the finish that's both brash and loud.

NVWE Notes: Rich and generous, this complex bottling offers aromas of stone fruit, golden fig, fresh apple sauce, Asian pear, pineapple core, vanilla cream pie, baking-spice, preserved lemon and mock orange. Youthful firmness and good density are both evident on the palate, where apple skin and nut husk notes bring a piquant counterpoint to the wine's richer core of white peach and apple. Golden fig and yellow mulberry notes join in at the end, along with quieter suggestions of yellow rose, white pepper, nutmeg, clove, cashew and pistachio. Built for winter's richer entrees, it is tasty now and destined to be more so next year. 150 cases produced.
