The 2018 Olson Vineyard Chardonnay has a rich, sweet aroma; a blend of ripe and backed apples, a sweet floral bouquet, and a hint of cinnamon-clove, and furniture wax. The flavors have a bright, sweet-rich entry, with medium oiliness, followed by a burst of ripe and backed apples, with touch of oak spices.
The mouthfeel is bright, with a tongue coating “fat” layer, a rich middle and a long sweet flavorful finish.
Ready to drink now, this Chardonnay will improve with cellaring for 3 to 5 years.

The finish is very long, rich and sustained, with red and dark berry flavors intermingling with the oak notes and the lightly spicy tannins.This wine benefit from cellaring but can be enjoyed anytime without decanting.
