2015 Chardonnay "The Limit"
Radian Vineyard, Sta. Rita Hills
You can pretty much tell this is going to be a big Chardonnay just by looking at it. The thickness of the golden, sun-ripened liquid is the tell-tale sign of the viscosity that is about to land on your tongue. Custardy, lemon chiffon, apple-pear fruit takes center stage in the nose. The mouth is like a succulent explosion of the whole thing. Once again, The Limit is a big, fat, rich compliment to the Top Cream, and the logical conclusion is that vintage 2015 was a great year for me when it came to Chardonnay. A word to the wise: be patient with this wine. It's so layered and there are so many facets to it that if you let it rest for a few more months, I think you will be well rewarded. By the 4th of July, this thing will be a bomb.
