Whitcraft 2004 Bien Nacido Vineyard Barrel Select Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley)

This is a bizarre wine. The alcohol is extremely high, and the fruit is enormously ripe, to the point of bananas. The wine will have its fans, but to me it's Chardonnay-Port, over-manipulated and over-stylized. Tasted twice.
