Baron Herzog 1999 Chardonnay (California)

If you want to know what artificial oak smells and tastes like, it's on full display here. Sawdust aromas come before a creamy, oaky palate. It's not cloying or overly heavy, and the acidity is strong enough to keep things lively, but it still lacks a clean fruit character, and the forced oak flavor is not appealing. —M.S. Michael Schachner
