  • 2012 Peay Vineyards Chardonnay Estate – USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (3/5/2018)
    WIML92

    Tasted double blind.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of butter, hazelnut, vanilla and yellow pear. Flavors of butterscotch, lemon and yellow pear. Medium acidity, full bodied. Drink over the next year or two.

    My guesses were New World, Chardonnay, USA, Sonoma County. 4/4. (92 points)
