Classy, elegant, well balanced and above all lively... its a Zinfandel of rare depth, intensity, minerality and freshness with a degree of complexity that should be the envy of those from the over ripe/ raisined school of production.
This chardonnay carries a lot of oak, while underneath the fruit is charming, open and sufficiently edgy, with flavors of dried pineapple and lime. It has a structural grip that suggests more than oak is in play-something rocky and mineral, perhaps contributed by Cambria’s extensive holdings of deep-rooted vines from the 1970s and '80s.
