  • 2012 Newton Chardonnay Unfiltered – USA, California, Napa Valley (4/5/2017)
    WIML90

    Tasted blind.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose is slightly dirty smelling up front like an earthiness followed by some mixed yellow fruits. Flavors of light notes of vanilla, creme and Anjou pear. Medium acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink now.

    My guess was this is New World, California Chardonnay, Sonoma or Central Coast, 2014 Kosta Browne or Sea Smoke. (90 points)
