Knights Bridge 2009 Alder Springs Chardonnay (Mendocino)

There's beautiful fruit from a beautiful vineyard in here somewhere but first let there be oak, lots of it (100% new French), giving the wine a dark golden hue and the nose an interesting meaty, baked apple quality. Taste-wise the wine is almost savory and leathery, full of ripe, exotic fruit, hugely creamy with a smackdown finish. Not for the meek but with time could get quite lovely. Virginie Boone
