A gold-colored, heavy-bodied Chardonnay with a closed, rather unappealing nose. Slight odors of marinated asparagus mingle with notes of the sea. An offering of pleasant fruit just isn't there. The finish is ponderous and the wine just doesn't make for much of a package. Not terrible, but one to take a pass on.
