Rusack 2009 Reserve Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley)

Made the same way as the winery's previous reserves, with ripe, lush fruit that was barrel fermented in half-new oak and aged sur lies. It's a very rich wine, elaborate in pineapple jam, lemon tart, crême brulée and buttered toast flavors. Opulently powerful, but could use greater elegance and finesse.
