Roche 2007 American Oak Reserve Barrel Select Chardonnay (Carneros)

It's common to complain that American oak isn't as good as French oak, but this wine disproves that. The wood shows up as rich in caramel, buttered toast and vanilla spice notes that provide a lovely counterpoint to the wine's grilled pineapple and lime fruit. This is a beautiful, interesting Chardonnay.
